I think this fight is going to end on a decision. I know that Nog can outbox Ricco but I dont see either fighter wanting to stand for very long. Both have maaaaaaaad skill on the ground, but I think Ricco has a strength advantage. It will be interesting to see how this one works out. What is your opinion?

More I think about it, the worst it gets for Ricco
He never face a grappler in MMA like nog...this aint ADCC...I see this much like the herring fight....

I agree with Mr. Ensanity, he didn't just become a black belt by being a whore.
Nogueira is gonna start off by out boxing Ricco, until Ricco tries to get a take down. This is gonna be all Nog...

I never thought I'd say this, but Nog wants to keep it standing. He definitly owns the edge in stand-up skills.
However, Ricco working Nogueira is totaly different.
If Ricco does get Nogueira down, I think Ricco has the advantage. His takedowns are better, his GnP is better and he is very slick at getting out of subs (you have to be if your a brown belt in BJJ)
I am SO looking forward to this fight
