Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira and Randy "The Natural" Couture's showdown at UFC 102 was a match-up that was years in the making, and it had fans on the edge of their seats in terms of excitement and pure entertainment. It all came to fruition on Saturday with Nogueira answering critics by showing a granite chin, great boxing skills, and a nullifying ground game to defeat Couture via unanimous decision. In the wake of the win, media began to wonder... where was this "Minotauro" in the Frank Mir fight at UFC 92?

I know people disagree but I think Nog takes it if they fight again. I dont think the staph infection had everything to do with the fight but I do believe that Nog would avenge the loss. No denying that Mir brought his A game that night and deserved the victory I just feel that things would be different if they fought again. Lets hope it happens!!!
