yea thats a possible ending, i see nog getting trip takedowns form the clinch, and tim might push him away with his long legs, and as he is pushing away nog, he just grabs a hold of it (like arlovski did in their first fight).......

even though ita likely way to end im gonna say nog wins 2nd round armbar, he is in side control, and just grabs a hold of tims arm, and rips it off, becuase if the mir fight against sylvia says anything is that sylvia wont tap...but who knows

i know it isnt the most popular opinion but i think big tim will win. i think he will defend the take down and or avoid submissions well enough and catch nog with a big shot late. i do think tim will be taken down, if monson could take him down then nog can. but tim has phenomenal sub defense and i think eventually tim will land the big shot and get the ko, nog isnt known for his chin.

I'd love to see Nog take it, but I just see Tim doing the whole sprawl and jab strategy straight to a decision victory. I don't see Tim finishing Nog, and I think Nog finishing Tim is highly unlikely as well.

I have to go with Tim on this one....He's just got better hands. I think he will find a home for them on Big Nog's big nog!!

i respect your opinion and everything, but i completely disagree with BIg Nog isnt know for his chin???????????????????????????
wasnt he kicked by cro cop right in the face and didnt get KO'd, or the shots he took from sapp, or the kick he took from herring, have you seen his fight with fedor??????? he took tremendous amount of punish but never did he get KO'd......Nog can take huge amount of punishment, and his recovery is very quick.....i respect your opinion but saying nog doesnt have a good chin is just foolish

When Herring kicked him he dropped and Herring was too afraid to go in and finish him because he didn't want to get subbed. I think Tim will be motivated enough in this fight for a third heavyweight belt that if he does end up dropping Nog he won't be scared to follow it up with some ground and pound or at least keep the pressure on him. After all, we have seen Tim's arm get broken because he didn't want to tap.

He has fought Fedor 3x, Cro Cop, Bob Sapp, Dan Henderson a couple times, Heath Herring a few times, and Semmy Schilt and never once has he been TKO'd. He is known for having a chin made out of steel. and he will eat anything Tim has.

of course, im not saying Nog is impossible to knock out ...rampage has a hell of chin but he has been KO'd, but saying that they dont have a good chin is just ridiculous

After seeing so many Pride fighters lose recently in the UFC and how Big Nog almost got KO'ed by Heath Herring, I think im going with Sylvia surprisingly
