Default LIL NOG IN THE UFC!!!!!

How has no one posted about this yet????

Quote:
It appears that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, the brother of former Pride and UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, will make his Octagon debut at UFC 106 against Luis Cane. A report by Loretta Hunt of Sherdog.com citing sources close to the negotiations said the bout has been verbally agreed to. MMAWeekly.com sources confirmed the report.

Nogueira (17-3) has been on a five-fight winning streak that began following a loss to Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou at Pride 33 in early 2007. He has kept busy traveling across the globe fighting in Japan, the United States, and Canada since the closure of Pride.

Cane (10-1) has quickly risen to contention in the UFC light heavyweight division defeating Sokoudjou, Steve Cantwell, and Jason Lambert. His only stumble since entering the Octagon was a disqualification loss to James Irvin at UFC 79 due to an illegal knee to the head while Irvin was down.

UFC 106 is scheduled to take place on Nov. 21 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas. UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is expected to defend his title against Shane Carwin in the main event and Tito Ortiz returns to the Octagon to face Mark Coleman.
Man, this is shaping up to be one heck of a card!!!

I think they train together with Black House, but I could be wrong. That camp is stacked - the Nogs, Anderson Silva, and Machida. It would be a sweet fight, but I don't know if they'd agree to it.

Yeah I believe they do train together but Dana has been saying guys are going to have to fight people from their own gym and I am sure Lil Nog came to the UFC with the expectation of a title run. I am sure he knows that he may have to face Machida at some point.
