Most Underrated Fighter Ever

  1. Most Underrated Fighter Ever


    It's so funny how we're all watching one of the GOATs in MMA and he seldom, if ever, gets the recognition he deserves.

    A few clues:
    Been ranked in the top-5 of his weight class since 2001
    BJJ BB (arguably most adapted to MMA)
    Held the championship in every major org he's fought in
    Brazilian



    The fighter is Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Save for Fedor, he is without a doubt the greatest HW in MMA history. This weekend really showed what Nog is all about: just when you think he's done, he finds a way to pull out the win. His boxing really impressed me against Couture and he worked some magic on the ground against a great grappler.

  2. Ya the show he put on was great. I am still amazed how Couture didn't get submitted though. But that was some straight dominance.

  3. I agree...... Nog's banged with the best, no doubt, and i think that gives him the edge over a lot of the new comers (obviously i dont mean couture when i say new comer).


    A lot of decisions are tough to call, but Nog without a doubt earned this one.

    he is a beast, can take one hell of a beating just like fedor.

  5. I always thought Igor Vovchanchyn was a bit underrated.

    He was, but it was a different era. He did end the Mark Kerr train, though.

  7. Lets not forget that Big Nog was run over by a truck when he was a kid, he is one durable mofo!

  8. how the F did randy not get submitted. yeah he did look much sharper which caused me to lose 20$. big nogs wrap sheet looks great if you type him on on wikipedia and i mean great.

  9. Nog is definitely one of the best HW's ever, but he hasn't looked good in the UFC except against Couture. He looked pretty bad against Heath and Sylvia and got wrecked by Mir and Cain. Sad to see, one of my favorite fighters of all time, but those wars are catching up with him. It was so painful for me to see Mir beat him like that. I hate Mir

    That was more of a trolley imo.
