Big Nog vs Vera Rumor
I hope its true With Randy Couture, Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic, Gabriel Gonzaga, Andrei Arlovski and Fabricio Werdum all tied up in the near future, there are few “big name” fighters available to fight the former PRIDE FC heavyweight champion. In fact, the only other competitive option besides Vera is former UFC heavyweight titleholder Tim Sylvia. Of course, the UFC can feed Nogueira a can or journeyman to build up name recognition among fans. But a showdown with someone like Vera — a young and exciting fighter — would no doubt be a solid addition to any pay-per-view (PPV) card. Link

Leonard Garcia Earns Second Shot at UFC Win
link UFC rookie Leonard Garcia (9-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC), who battled Roger Huerta (17-1-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in one of UFC 69’s most entertaining fights, will be invited back to the UFC for a second fight, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Steve Sievert. Garcia, who filled in for Alvin Robinson on just one month’s notice, dropped a unanimous decision to Huerta.
