Big Nog wants to fight Mir or Lesnar

About 11:50 into it, he says Mir, and Lesnar. God I hope it's not Lesnar. I think he'd retire Big Nog. I could see Mir though, and go with that Rematch, and possibly Brock vs. Overeem. We'll see how things play out.

There's really only a couple of guys he can go to. Both of those guys are ex former champions too. What's with the Brazilians wanting only former champs.

Both fights make sense for him. Mir he's already lost to he has also had plenty of excuses about that particular fight. For Mir not sure what he gains from it.

Brock and Rodrigo makes sense. I guess he feels he has better standup than Brock and he really wants it to go to the mat. From his perspective I guess it's a good fight. From my POV I think the power differential in that one could be very bad for him. Ideally a guy fresh off the longest layoff of his career and 15 surgeries later shouldn't ask for the most physically dominant HW out there but hey.. if he wants it, let him have it!

I think Nog against Brock is a bad matchup. I can see him beating Mir though. Of course, him and Brock depends on whether or not Brock is a shriveled pretzel or not.

Nog needs to drop the former champ thing. winner of kongo/mitrione is the fight that makes sense

I'm 100% for Mir-Nog 2 right now. I'd even accept it as a main event of a card with a few exciting fights on it.

Nogueira is a main eventer, so him being paired up with a former champ makes sense. I dunno, I'd be up for Nogueira vs. Lesnar.
