Nog has long been one of my two or three favorite fighters, but his inability to beat Fedor seems absolute. As a result, his place in MMA in general and PRIDE specifically is tough to discern.
He can and has beaten everyone else in PRIDE and IMO he's far better then any of his UFC counterparts. But as he's unable to beat Fedor, where does that leave him?
If Fedor leaves after his fight with CroCop, as has been heavily rumored then Nog is in the unenveable position of being the best by default.
So I ask the question: Where does Nog go now?
