Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is coming off two wins against UFC champions, but they were his only two bouts in the last 30 months. Despite some of the injuries that have caused his inactivity recently,.............

That's probably something close to true... but that is a BIG if. I don't see him making it to the final bell with Rumble though. Rumble by KO.

I want to give a huge thumbs up to the exceptional grammar in the headline of the article. That is no quote from Lil Nog either. MMA journalism. lol

He should be since he beat Rashad and Rumble just knocked off a top contender. He wouldn't be more then a fight away that's for sure.

I don't like this fight though as I don't want either to lose! I'd lean towards Nog even though Rumble could KO him, Nog has the better boxing.

I just don;t see Rogerio getting out of 2nd gear. He's going to look very slow and get pounded on.
