In a recent interview with the TATAME website, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira already knows who he wants after his UFC debut against Luis Cane at UFC 106-Mauricio Rua. They first fought in PRIDE in 2005 where Rua won by decision. “Shogun is a great fighter, a great champion, and he was in the best shape of his career. He has his merits, in the end of the fight I tried to get his back... It could be different, but that’s ok. I’d like to do this fight again”, Nogueira guarantees, revealing that he’ll become a father soon. “I’ll fight now for my daughter’s milk (laughs)”.

The cute Iowan named doug is correct... you can differentiate between them by saying either Minotauro/Minotoro, Big/Lil Nog, or Antonio Rodrigo/Antonio Rogerio.

crazy thing is i do think if they both lose they will fight each other next and say shogun wins and lil nog does i do think he could jump past couture and fight for the title

but if lil nog loses and shogun wins who knows
but luckily i do have their fight on dvd, and i would love to see the rematch in the cage

This fight would be war...

Hopefully the planets align for this one to go down in the not so distant future.

I think it's actually "Minotouro" not "Minotoro"

That's why I stick with Big and Lil, HW or LHW you can't go wrong....even Dana White uses it! However I am a little surprised that he wants a rematch...he didn't lose poorly and it was almost 5 years ago! If Shogun losses to Machida then this fight would be perfect for the fans though for sure!!!

You're right and I've been aware of that since 2002.
