Nog beating Cro Cop means nothing
Cro Cop beating Nog means both end their careers....

So I see only Nog with something to lsoe here.

While Nog can try to revamp his career (after surgery), I don't see how Cro Cop could help his.
I would say let Cro Cop retire, and give Nog a middle of the pack opponent. that will gauge where he is. And if he is competitive, then wait for fedor & Hendo and then put nog against either! That should be exciting! :)

Nice job guys. About 20 hours before you even linked this story, it had been already announced that Nogueira and Branden Schaub had verbally agreed to fight each other.

The UFC might as well have a 35 years and older class. Is this fight even worth watching? Both men have looked sloppy in their most recent bouts. I just hope Nog doesn't ruin his legacy by accepting these fights. He should stick to teaching at this point in his career. Leave the sport while you still have some dignity. The same goes for Cro Cop, one more head kick equivalent to the one he took from Gabriel Gonzaga, will put him in a coma.
