What is your likeliness of Fabricio Werdum submitting Minotauro in this rematch? I feel Werdum has the advantage everywhere in this rematch but do you guys believe he will submit the fading legend?
 
Grappling will probably be a stalemate. Werdum will win by being the better fighter at this point in their respective careers. His body hasn't taken the lifetime of damage that Nog's has, and he hasn't slowed down in the way that Nog has. Werdum has slowly and gradually gotten better and better, and I think this is the best he's been so far in his career. I see him taking a decision.

i agree with this analysis
 
i don't understand why everyone say that Nogueira is past his prime and isn't dangerous anymore.
in his last 3 fight he knocked out Schaub, rocket Mir and rocket Herman, when in his long career he never been dangerous standing.
just rewatch the first fight with Mir, the last fight with Herring and the fight with Sylvia... that was Zombie Nog, now he is a different fighter.
people only consider the injuries and the record, but be realistic, now Nogueira has a piston of a right hand and has good head movement.
he has a good chance to hurt Werdum with punches, he has better hands and movement than him.
 
nog surprisingly became a tko machine, so we'll find out if he can throw some counters at werdum's kicks. i also think werdum is stronger & will be smart enough to neutralize nog's half-guard game.
 
nogs half guard game worked mostly on guys with not very good grappling, that aint werdums case.
 
With the way they both have been looking lately, I would go with Werdum. But if nog gets adequate training and recovery, which he will have going into this fight, he may make it more competitive.Still leaning towards Werdum but don't count Nog out.
