To put it simply, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (34-7-1 MMA, 5-3 UFC) knows Fabricio Werdum (16-5-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) is not the same man he faced in 2006 – not even close.

So when the two meet this summer following a stint as opposing coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2," Nogueira said he's expecting a completely different fight.

"Each fight is different," Nogueira told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I know it's not going to be the same fight. I don't think it's going to come to boxing like the last fight."

I'll be rooting for Big Nog but, Werdum is the much better fighter at this point

This is going to be such a great fight.

First thought is Werdum by tko, but Nog could very well knock him out too. With my best foresight possible, I do see a great deal of grappling but I think they'll be stale and agree on a kickboxing bout. Very interesting rematch.

Sticking with gut
Werdum by Tko

Edit: why is this the first I've heard of this rematch?!
