Champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to Face Winner of Shane Carwin vs. Brock Lesnar

MMA legend and the only man to hold the Heavyweight Championship belt in both PRIDE and the UFC, is likely to be the next in line for the current title after Shane Carwin faces Brock Lesnar at UFC 116.

Inside Fights has confirmed a Wrestling Observer Newsletter report that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will face the winner of the Brock Lesnar/Shane Carwin fight.

Big Nog, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has impressively defeated Randy Couture, and requested a rematch w/ Frank Mir, BUT it is shaping up that he’s the top contender for the belt after this upcoming heavyweight title fight.

Nogueira is one of few fighters to take Fedor all rounds (including a 10 minute first round) to a decision. The Dragon Zone will soon be posting that classic battle.

Stay Tuned!

    Are you fucking serious you knob? Everyone in MMA knew it was going to Velasquez then Dos Santos…. why would you even put this bullshit on a site?

    Make you look like a dumbfuck bro.

  2. What an ignorrant moron you are….. This post attracted you to make a comment didn’t it?

  3. Mr Dumbass,

    This is old news. Like before the Carwin/Lesnar fight was postponed for over a year. Everyone in MMA, (except you) knew that.

    As my partner said, thanks for the comment and the traffic to our site.
