Antonio Rogerio Nogueira talks to Sherdog about his UFC debut and his reluctance to fight Lyoto Machida for the UFC light heavyweight belt.

Didn't watch it but for the last time Blackhouse won't/shouldn't have to fight Blackhouse AKA won't/Shouldn't fight AKA, ATT won't/shouldn't fight ATT, Team Jackson won't/shouldn't fight Team Jackson. If it comes to a point that the team is keeping a fighter from his goal he will have to move on to another team to attempt to achieve that goal.

Shogun vs Rampage 2 or Lil Nog 2 for the belt

I was actually wondering who they were going to set Lil Nog up with after last night.

Rashad/Thiago are both booked

Jardine isn't as worthy as he once was......maybe Forrest, but I doubt they want Forrest to lose again. A friend thought Bader, but I def think Bader is way too green for Lil Nog at this point.

Maybe Franklin @ 205?

If franklin, then franklin has had one of the toughest schedules in MMA, especially for a non-champ... Belfort, Wandy, Hendo, now you want to give em Lil Nog. I think Franklin needs a break.

Rashad/Thiago is only a month away winner could get lil nog.

Maybe rampage if he returns sooner rather then later... I say feed em Griffin, if forrest truly wants to be back in contention then here is the fight to get each of em there...

Franklin has said though that he only wants big name fights, I do agree it would be a tough schedule but with a lot of guys already set with fights and Rampage being an unknown, I guess you'd either have to wait for the winner of Silva/Evans which is in Jan or set it up with Ace.

I think Jardine is a good fight for little nog. He has a good name and NOG should be able to beat him. It would give casual fans another fight to get to know him a bit. I like the guy as a fighter and he laid a beatdown on Cane but right now everyone is crowning him and saying he is close to a title shot is ludacris! I want to see a lot more of little Nog before I start calling for a title shot. I mean, Sokudjou whooped him in pride.

yeah, but Thierry has the kind of power that can K.O. anybody if he gets the chance.

I agree though...give NOg some sweet fights

I could see the winner out of the hamil/jones fight. UFC could start banking on that 2nd nog name.

Say what you will, but from the instant somebody talked about Lil' Nog joining the UFC he became a title contender. This man is no joke. His boxing and jits are on a whole other level than most of the UFC. Sure Cane isn't that big of a name, but if anybody thinks Lil Nog's absolute destruction of him was no big deal then they ought to pay more attention.

IMO he was the best signing all year that the UFC made.

mmaweekly- * White predicted Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will face the winner of Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva.

With that said Rampage vs lil Nog winner vs each other sounds like 3 good fights to me.
