Those Noguueira's and opponents with the name Cain. Should be a good fight.

I think NOG wins, Cain is a little to unexpirienced.

At first I thought it meant that the Little nog vs Luis Cane was moved to 108 But the other way is mucho primo better!!!! This card is shaping up nicely, so long as Lesnar gett well soon. NOG vs Velasquez, with Gonzaga vs Dos Santos, Rashad vs Thiago Silva, and I am really looking forward to Semtex laying Condit out cold!!!!

I saw this fight coming, if Junior Dos Santos loses to GG, then the winner of this fight gets next title shot.

This will be one hell of a test for Cain. His striking and BJJ defense will both be tested by Nog.

I love This Fight...

We will get to see where Cain ground defense is at this point,

awesome fight. hard to guage cause i don't know what cain's bjj defense is like
if cain can avoid big nog's subs than he can hang with anyone in the division.
i'll be rooting for big nog, though, as i think he's got the best skillset to dethrone lesnar
not to mention he's cool as hell

This fight boils down to sub defense. Does Cain have enough to avoid 3 rounds of sub attempts from Nog? The likelihood of this fight remaining standing is low in my opinion and it will be a clash of the skill sets. Will Cains GnP prevail or will Nog pull out another patented submission after taking a beating? Either way, I'm excited as hell for this one.

The way Cain keeps surprising me I see him grinding out a decision. If it goes past 2 rounds Cains cardio will wear Minotauro out. Gonna go with Cain by UD.

So let me get this straight....Minotoro's first UFC fight is against Cane, while Minotauro's next UFC fight is against Cain.....is it just me or will the casual fan still not know the difference between the two!?

I thought that this bout is Big Nog vs Velazquez?
I'm confused......

Edit: Haha, no longer confused!

Very interesting matchup. Should be an amazing fight. Unless he gets caught in a submission I like Velasquez
