Antonio Rogerio Nogueira not interested in proposed Brandon Vera bout

According to Fighters Only magazine, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira's Muay Thai coach stated that UFC matchmaker, Joe Silva, offered the Brazilian a match up against Brandon Vera at UFC 110 on Feb. 6, 2010 -- the card headlined by his twin brother Rodrigo and Cain Velasquez.

"Minotoro" is happy with the date, but isn't all that interested in fighting Vera because he is coming off of a loss. In addition, the two share a training facility.

Earlier in the week, Lil' Nog expressed interest in wanting to fight a big name like Forrest Griffin in his next fight.

Rogerio and Griffin competed on the same card in separate fights a few weeks back, so it would sound like a logical choice. However, it doesn't seem that the UFC is interested in feeding Griffin to the wolves again, which is exactly what would take place if he faces off against the much more skilled Nogueira!
