Back in 2005 at Pride Critical Countdown, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira engaged in one of my favorite fights ever. Shogun walked away with the unanimous decision victory that night, but it looks like Lil' Nog will get his chance for revenge eight years later. Brazilian website Tatame confirmed that the fighters have agreed to face off on a yet-unannounced card in June, and the fight will NOT be taking place in Brazil:

The confrontation should take place in June, but the fight will not be in Brazil, as every fan would like. The site of the newspaper The Lance! reported the possibility of holding the fight at the last weekend (of the month).

Good fight

I thought we were going to see a Machida vs Lil Nog match up to be honest

Itll be a war. Nog still holds the striking advantage.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

June PPv will have

My guess Calgary

I've always said that Forrest/ Bonnar 1 wasn't even the best fight of that month. Can't wait for this rematch.

Their 1st fight is definitely one of my top 5 favourite mma fights.
