“I am still thinking about what to do and right now I need some rest. I will talk with Lorenzo and we will see. I just need motivation right now… Since 2003, its inside of me to have a rematch with Nogueira, definitely. He is one of the true legends, a pioneer of the sport, former Pride champion and former UFC champion as well. It would be a very interesting rematch for me.”
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira recently stated his desire to face either Frank Mir or Mirko Filipovic (check here) in his next bout, which sounds good to the erstwhile Croatian, saying a rematch would be a fight he could not refuse. “Big Nog” and “Cro Cop” fought at Pride: "Final Conflict" in 2003 with the Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert using the sweet art to manage a submission win in the second round of an unforgettable match-up. Would you feel fired up to see them go at it again in the UFC Octagon? Care to predict which MMA legend would win this confrontation? Sound off, Maniacs.
