That line was part of a recent quick quote from interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Minotauro also notes that fighting Couture was a big reason he came to UFC and also commented on how often he thinks Champions should defend their titles.

I am personally pissed about Randy's decision. He is pretty much saying that Big Nog is not good enough for him to fight. Come on Randy, man up and just fight Big Nog. It will be just as epic (if not more so) as a fight with Fedor.

Randy would probably get owned by Big Nog.

Big Nog by UD.

Gotta say I like Nog as the champ
his mindset and views are completely correct, I like champions that defend there titles
and are proud to have the opportunity to prove there the best

He's got a point no-one can argue that. Its just his point could work against him if the UFC don't sign any good competition for the HW devision an soon!
What fights are left for him?
Wredum, Vera, De Cruze, Lesner an Coleman? They are really the only competition he has right now and i'd only rank one f them as 10 ten.

Nog's a warrior an will fight anyone i just hope he's got the level of competition he deserves this year.

sorry for the use of MMAath......Fedor > Nog > Randy

why do you think randy picked tim to beat nog? he wanted to fight tim again then fedor he didnt want to fight nog.....randy wants to fight fedor for a possible but not probable upset that would make randy huggers or newbie fans think hes godlike even in retirement...... the guy claims to be at his peak and could actually beat fedor let alone bang with him yet only has "one fight left in him" ??? this is highly ironic and not believable, hes now greedy and selfish, too bad money is ruining MMA fighters now......if fedor lost to randy it would hurt MMA's because of who randy has become, but any real MMA fan would bet their house on fedor... i would

Im sick of the Couture situation i just wish he would man up and stop bitching, yer fair enough the whole MMA world wants to see him fight Fedor but protecting his winning spree (My opinion Nog would destroy him) just to make the fight seem bigger is just cowardly.

I feel bad for Nogueira he came to the ufc to face the best, and the best have left . Randy sould fight him quit waiting for Fedor. Fight Nogueira and prove your as good as you say you are, If you deserve to fight Fedor you sould have no problem beating Nogueira.
