If it's mostly standup, Kongo has a decent chance. On the ground, Nog takes it. Now of course if Couture comes along and says he think Kongo will win, then that's it, all bets are off. We all know not to bet against Couture.






True dat

I'm pretty much with everyone else on this one. Kongo just can't compete with Nog on the ground. If Kongo gets taken down, Nog will finish him fairly quickly.

Nog/1st round Submission. (but the way my picks have been going, Kongo will win by Unanimous Decision)

This is a fight between arguably the best BJJ guy in the HW div vs. a guy who was mounted by Cro Cop....



Exactly. You're exactly right.

End thread right there.

Nog is very hard to tko or Ko, if your set on kongo then pick him by UD. Keep in mind he coulden't finish Cro Cop who had broken ribs and sore balls.

Unless Nog decides to stand with Kongo, this fight should end via submission in the 1st round. Kongo's ground game still has too many holes in it.

kongo is only an inch tall that nog so I dont think size will be that much of a factor

I have a feeling that Congo is going to be working his ground game heavily for this fight. Specifically I would expect to see some sweep attempts that might give Congo just the chance he needs to keep the fight standing. Something about Ibarra's camp has me thinking upset. No no no, I have to go with Nogueira here. The only way I see Congo winning is with a really strong first round where he KO's or nearly KO's Nogueira.

Kongo is an amazingly strong and freakish human. But Big Nog has mad ground skills. Kongo might put up a fight in round 1 but i dont seem him making it out of round 2.

There are a few thing guranteed in MMA:

1.Arona isn't getting subbed.
2.Matt Serra will always be a jackass.
3.Sherk is going to win via UD.
4.Coleman is going to gas.
5.You can't KO "Minotauro" Nogueira
