Lead SR WriterAntonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs Brendan Schaub
So Nogueira beat Cro Cop in his prime, and Schaub beat Cro Cop in his decline. Schaub's resume doesn't otherwise convince me to expect him to win.
Nogueira is coming off of hip surgery and says he is feeling pain free for the first time in over 3 years in the sport. I have to take Big Nog over Schaub. Simply because I believe in "The Hybrid" and his ascension through the ranks just can't overcome what I have already seen from the living legend Nogueira.
