    Wow...perhaps Omega was right about something? :icon_bigg
    What do you mean perhaps?

    Heaven forbid I should actually know what I'm talking about. Thanks for slowing that down at least it gives my view point some validity.

    Warning: opposing opinion, I'm almost cringing at how this might get taken apart but it's just my observation based on memory.

    I thought Nogueira's whole game plan for that fight was disastrous, he took a hiding looking for takedowns, which the majority of them being blocked because his posture was terrible. What he did in the OP's video was beautiful, but he absorbed a hell of a lot of punishment in getting there. Had Sylvia's hands been a little heavier or had he been fighting a better boxer he'd have been KO'd in the early goings. IMO.

    This seems to be working for Nog, especially after looking at a few of his fights that have gone this way.

    CroCop's not a better boxer than Sylvia?

    I didn't see that fight, did he employ the same strategy?

    Nog is the Bret Hart of MMA, take a massive beating and come from behind to win.

    It's why he looks like Frankenstein

    Yes but is that a safe and healthy strategy? Is it a smart strategy?
