Is it too early to call that ‘Fight of the Year’? Despite being sponsored by Cash 4 Gold and being one of the legendary headliners for EA Sports MMA, The Natural just couldn’t get the W against Big Nog. With a name like Big Nog, you wonder why Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira hasn’t been sponsored by an Egg Nog company. I know if I saw Nogueira’s head on a carton of Egg Nog I would instantly buy it, look at the carton, then run away out of sheer terror.
More importantly, we were the only MMA website on MMAMoneyline to get this fight correct! Finally we’ve scored a couple predictions and we’re going to celebrate by thawing out the Corona we left in the fridge and eventually drinking it.
As Shane Carwin put it, this is what happens when two legends get in the cage. Randy Couture evaded every submission attempt by Big Nog and after years of the MMA world trying to get this fight to happen, we finally witnessed greatness. Congrats to Big Nog and your overly dope Jaco Clothing gear.
