  1. lets go nover

  2. lets hope he can stay consious when it comes to the fight

  3. Nover should be able to take Emerson. He can do everything Rob can, only better.

  4. your right Ryan he's especially better at getting taken down, passing out before fights, and going into seizures lol. But i do dislike emerson he's a punk i hope nover pulls it off.

  5. Seriously though, his stand up is cleaner and he has ground game, unlike emerson. But yeah, he does that seizure thing.

  6. i would agree from watching the utlimate fighter but Emerson has won a lot of fights since his stint on TUF while Nver the guy who dana said was anderson and gsp's equals lol hasnt even won a fight. he got a takedown clinic put on him in the finale, then while the stoppage was early he got dropped and was getting beat, then he had a seizure before his third fight and didnt fight so i think emerson has been a lot more impressive. Emerson is a DOUCHE bag tho and i hope he loses. I will never root for him after hearing about him and his gang banger friends beating on kids.

  7. I still think that second loss for Nover is arguable. It was a fucked up stoppage. What was the story about beating up kids?
