Randy could beat Nog simply because his wrestling is much better and he knows how to apply it to a cage. Nog also doesnt have the power in his hands to hurt Randy when hes coming in. However, I think Nog has a bigger chance of submitting Randy than Randy has going 5 rounds w/o getting subbed. We all know Randy wont TKO/KO Nog so the question is, Can Randy go 5 rounds with Nog w/o getting swept and submitted? I dont think so but if anyone can do it, its Randy.

I dont think Randy could beat Fedor because unlike Nog's wrestling which horribly lacks explosiveness and speed, Fedor's wrestling is VERY good and his take down defense is excellent. Randy is usually able to set up his TD's with his hands, IMO Fedor would keep his distance and light up Randy from the outside like Chuck did. Chuck avoided the clinch and contact and dropped bombs on Randy whenever Randy came in for the clinch. I think Fedor, unlike Nog has the punching power to stop Randy the same way from the outside.

Now, you are showin how green you are I think....wrestling skills and BJJ skills are not the same thing. A great wrestler may not have good submissions, and a BJJ fighter may be shit at wrestling. Nogs Wrestling is not as good as Randys is the comment and probably correct, but Randy is not as good at BJJ as Nog is.

I have to agree with him on this one. Randy is a way better "WRESTLER" than NOG is but NOG is a better BJJ fighter.

Wrestling is not BJJ and BJJ is not wrestling....kind of like a Apple and a Bannana...both fruit (grappling) but not the same....Get it??

Randy won his freedom in the courts. His contract with the UFC expires in september, I believe.
