Lil' Nog walks out to "Da Rockwilder" off the Meth and Red classic "Blackout!" He's been coming out to this one for a while. Rashad makes his walk to "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See" by Busta Rhymes.  Round 1: Both men respecting each others power early. "Suga" scoring with some kicks to the body and the legs or Minotauro. Level changes and a head kick from Rashad blocked by Nog. He kicked the tape right off his own foot. Shad getting loose. Nog catches Rashad with a straight jab. Two minutes left in the opening frame and Rashad has yet to shoot in on Lil' Nog. Evans lands a couple of big rights on Rogerio. Rashad finally shoots with just under a minute left and he scores the fights first take down. Nog pops back up and we are back in the center of the Octagon. The round closes with Nog blocking another head kick attempt from Evans. 10-9 Evans after the first round.  Round 2: Nogeuira keeps land that right at will. He needs to watch from the counter right from Rashad. Nogueira is turning it up now. He's going to the body and the head of the former UFC Light Heavyweight champ. Rashad does not look like himself in there right now. Nog up 18-12 in head strikes mid way through the 2nd round. Rogan and Goldie point out all of the jab catchery going on here. I expected either Evans wrestling his way to a decision or a slug fest but not this that's for sure. Single for Rashad right on que but Nogueira is right back up and he's punishing Evans standing. Head kick for Rashad again to close out the round. Rogerio takes Round number 2. 19-19 heading into the 3rd and final frame.  Round 3: Nothing to really report here. This reminds me of when Rashad took on Bisping. A total snoozefest here. Don't know what's wrong with Rashad. Evans gets Rogerio with an eyepoke directly into the right eye. The doctors come into take a look and we are back in action. Lil' Nog ain't going out like that. Kick to the body from Rogerio. And again. Rashad is just kind of hanging out at this point. One thing is for certain, Evans doesn't get a title shot against Anderson Silva after this one. There is no winner in this fight. Worst fight of the night and possibly could go down as the worst of the year. 29-28 Nogueira if you're making me score it.
