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!

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.

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.
