Sho-gone: Mauricio Rua benched until 2011; no decision on 'Rampage vs Nogueira'


"Shogun's great, his knee's coming along great. It's all good. We don't have anything set up yet. With that division right now, Little Nog could fight Rampage, Rampage could fight Machida. There's a lot of fights we could make and we haven't made any decisions on (Nogueira vs. Rampage). We're looking at all of them. Time-wise, Rampage is still promoting the [A-Team] movie overseas, so we're trying to figure out what the next fight will be."

UFC President Dana White talks to reporters at yesterday's UFC 116: "Lesnar vs. Carwin" press conference (via MMA Fighting), confirming that light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua is on the shelf for eight months to rehab a surgically repaired knee. White was also hesitant to confirm the company's plans to have "Minotoro" Nogueira throw hands with former division kingpin Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. There's a lot of wiggle room in the 205-pound division, any match-ups you want to see come to fruition by year's end?
