The UFC’s suddenly-swelling heavyweight division just got a whole lot deeper.

UFC now has a better HW division than Pride. Especially since Fedor hasnt singed with Pride yet.

Pride has always had better fighters, UFC just markets better. Big Nog brings some great submission skills to the UFC and he will surely be the champ someday.

You can't be serious.

Nog, I think, would tap Tim out. I think Arlovski would have a better chance, but Tim would get worked like he did against Randy.

Both would be good fights, though.
