Little Nog to debut at UFC 105, no plans of fighting Machida

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is set to debut at UFC 105, but don't expect him to fight Lyoto Machida in the future.

Still a little early to give Jones that big of a fight, IMO... The kids a solid prospect and should be brought up slowly... I'd rather see him (Jones) fight Sozsynski or the winner of Stann / Cantwell...

Lil Nog... I guess I'd like to see him fight Vera or Hammil to start his UFC career... Excited to see that they signed him!

EDIT: and I guess I'd like to see a Thiago v Cane fight sooner than later

The UFC shouldn't sign anyone who would refuse to fight the current champion of their weight division.

It should be Dana's first question.

Awesome! I've been waiting for this for a while.

Thaigo Silva vs Luiz Cane
Lil Nog vs Brandon Vera?

Yeah, I mean, if you had the option to sign one of the only 2 top fighters you didn't have for your light heavyweight division you should definantly drop him for not wanting to fight his team mate. Good point!

Thiago and Cane train together now at ATT..I don't know if they'd fight each other or not.

So if Machida goes undefeated for the next three years as champion, Lil' Nog just won't fight for the title regardless of how successful he may be.

Okay.

It is a good point. The LHW division is stacked as hell. They don't NEED everyone. If you're going to sign someone that good who won't fight the champ all he's going to do is knock off contenders. That's very BAD for the division in the long run.

Thats what anderson silva is doing by the looks of it then if you put it that way.

my guess is thiago silva

or they could have dan henderson fight him in main event,

then have nate fight silva

luis cane is another name, i'll be curious who he fights but looks like main card could be full

wilks vs brown
bisping vs kang
lil nog vs
marcus davis vs
hardy vs kim

exactly. that's why dana said he'll have anderson fight for the title. I'm not sure he can make him do it, but I'd bet if he can't you won't see to many more fights at LHW for anderson.

I think Thiago Silva would be a good fight, especially if it's a main event of a free card on Spike. I doubt it would happen, but a Noguiera VS Anderson Silva would be cool too.

I think they should make him fight Luiz Cane for the opening bout or somethings, that'd be an interesting match in my opinion.

Anderson is a black belt under the Nog brothers. If he wont fight his training partner surely he wouldnt ever fight his student either.

Anderson fight little nog please he never going to fight him he says he not going to fight Machida.little nog wud not fight neither of them Machida has not said he wud not fight them.But if he will not fight them either and all 3 keep winning and there is no one left for them to fight we have a stail mate.So what happens then?If that is the case as much as i like Machida al be wanting shogun to do the damage at 104.WAR SHOGUN
