    When he fought Tim Sylvia, he was getting his ass beat right until he took him down and submitted him. The other one was when he fought Randy Couture, one of my favorite fights of all time. This fight took place everywhere.

    Truth, I had this bad feeling that Schaub was going to body Nog and couldn't of been more happy when Nog turned his lights out

    Why have you listed the only 3 fights where he got his ass beat for most of the fight then came back and won via sub?
    His best performances were like against Kharitonov where he outboxed a boxer.

    I enjoyed his perfect English on TUF but producers decided to subtitle him anyway.

    That when the Noguiera brothers first came to America, they started to pet a bus and happened to have Carrots on them, and started to feed the bus thinking it was a horse. Because, Brazil has no buses or cars, and the Nogueria brothers dont know what a fucking horse and a car look like

    I chose which fights based on a mixture of the quality of opponent, how devastating was the fight/finish, and how important it was to Big Nog's career and what it highlights about Big Nog as a fighter. Because of this there were plenty of fights I left out that were probably better than say Big Nog's KO over Schaub. Plenty of other fights I couldve included like the one you mentioned as well, but I felt the ones I picked matched my criteria better.

    His performance against Sergei was def his most impressive to me

    theres not many HWs in history id favor over 03-05 Sergei before the shoulder and injuries fucked up his career. I would only favor a handful.

    That was an incredible allaround performance by Nog

    Even though Cro Cop is my boy....I would have to say his arm bar was pretty amazing. CC had him in trouble before that too.

    His trilogy with Heath Herring is vastly underrated
