I hope its true

With Randy Couture, Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic, Gabriel Gonzaga, Andrei Arlovski and Fabricio Werdum all tied up in the near future, there are few “big name” fighters available to fight the former PRIDE FC heavyweight champion.

In fact, the only other competitive option besides Vera is former UFC heavyweight titleholder Tim Sylvia.

Of course, the UFC can feed Nogueira a can or journeyman to build up name recognition among fans.

But a showdown with someone like Vera — a young and exciting fighter — would no doubt be a solid addition to any pay-per-view (PPV) card.

Nog would destroy him, and vera will feel like an idiot for holding out for so long because he thought he was the "best eva" and demanded tons of money

The Nog family does have one bad Apple
his name is Egg Nog and he is not good at all

I agree with the article he will get destroyed

Vera 1st or 2nd Round TKO.......i hope they dont make this fight...its too hard of a match for Big Nog for his debut..

You really think Vera will be the first man to stop Big Nog, not very likely. Nog by sub rd. 3.

I don't think Vera will win or anything, but people are really counting him out. I think I'd give Vera a little bit of an edge on the feet, but Nog has good boxing as well.

Vera could use kicks to keep Nog away, stay on the outside and land shots.

But when it comes down to it, and if I bet on this fight if it happens, I'll be betting for Nog. 2nd round submission.

I wouldn't say Big Nog would smash Vera... Vera would put up a fight, i think. -Virus- is probably correct .... "it would probably be the first for HBO"

What makes you guys believe he'd just tear Vera apart? Vera's no joke, and he's certainly not going to be getting walked over, or a "stepping stone."
