Big Nog hasn't decided if he will retire yet
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira did have that talk with Dana White. You know, the same one the UFC president had with Chuck Liddell and Matt Hughes when their careers became unbearable to watch with their will to keep fighting even though their bodies could hardly take any more punishment. The last drop for Nogueira was his unanimous decision loss to Stefan Struve this past Saturday, at UFC 190. Although Big Nog may have spoken to Dana White, who offered him a scout position which he's accepted, that does not mean he is through fighting just yet.

Fedor reveals UFC negotiations in process, wants ‘strongest fighters in the world’
"The desire to fight in my blood," Fedor responded when asked about his return. "I'm in the sport for 11 years - my whole life is training and competition. Over the years, there has been a thirst not only to participate in battles, but also to transfer their knowledge and skills. After consulting with trainers, with the support of the family, I decided to return. "I must admit that I still had a long talk with my wife to get her support. But I found the words and persuaded Xenia. It generally supports me in every endeavor. And my mother ... my mother is very worried. Immediately I call, she learned. But in the end, too, I took my decision." "Now this is being negotiated, in particular with the UFC, as well as some other promotions. I think it will soon be finally determined. As for the opponent, I would say that desire must comply opportunities. I would like to face the strongest fighters in the world - UFC champion Fabricio Werdum. Given that over three years, I did not fight during the first fight I would like to get involved, check for myself.
