Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira says he's ready to fight anytime, and hopes to fight for the title or avenge his most recent loss if he has his way.

"I want Brock Lesnar for sure," said Nogueira, who rebounded from a UFC 92 loss to Frank Mir by defeating Randy Couture by unanimous decision at UFC 102 in August. "I want to fight him. But I would fight Frank Mir also. That's my second choice."

I disagree. I definitely see Nog losing to Brock, but I think Nog would take it to Mir this time...and again in the rubber match.

Nog would beat Mir in a rematch, I think they should make that rematch happen for sure.

I'll gladly accept that avatar bet, if the fight happens.

I would agree if you were talking about the Cro Cop of old. However, I don't think the fight would even be competitive between the 2 these days.

I've always been a Big Nog fan.....but it was hard to get to 'know' him earlier in this decade (Pride days). But now that MMA is blowing up on the other side of the atlantic, we've got a chance to get to know Nog. I just love the guy, his insight on things, his approach, his sense of team....everything. I think he'll hammer Mir this time. Don't want to be the one to make excuses but the Nog that was at 92 is not the same dude that destroyed Randy.....such better physical condition, its sick.
Hopefully Nog will be fighting Carwin next.

Nogueira vs Mir is still a toss up to me if it happens again...but I see Lesnar being too much for Nog to handle. There isn't anyone right now that I can see being able to deal with his size and athleticism.
