It appears that Nog and Mir won't be the TUF8 coaches (if they were it would be an 11 month layoff for both of them)

Perhaps Arlovski will re-sign and get a title shot vs. Big Nog. Otherwise I see him fighting Mir or the Vera/Werdum winner.

yeah ufc needs to clear up the HW division to get a clear contender. Like resign Andrei, he would be the first choice. Then if Werdum beats Vera, then it would be werdum. but if werdum looses and frank mir fights mccully and beats mccully then he is next or if mir doesnt fight mccully and werdum looses. and give it to mir.

I think that Mir/Vera/Werdum/mcully are all great match ups for big Nog i dont see any of them beating that tough s.o.b

it will be either Mir if he wins or Werdum if he wins. i cant see AA comin up with a title shot just yet, and McCully's 1 win in the UFC shows for shit.

I see this comment all the time, but how would they do this? Top HWs don't just materialize out of thin air.

87 is shaping up to be one of the best cards in awhile.

McCully? Nog would rape him blindfolded. Mir will crumble under under Nog's desire and cardio. The other two would give him a fight, but lose.
