New, 6 comments

MMA Mania is reporting that the anticipated matchup between Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira (32-5-1) vs. Cain Velasquez (7-0) has been rescheduled for Feb. 6th at UFC 109. Confirmation of this bout should be forthcoming in the next couple weeks. These two world class heavyweights were scheduled to throw down on January 2nd but a staph infection sidelined the former world champion Nogueira. Nogueira has consistently been one of the top few heavyweights in the game for much of this decade and Velasquez is considered one of, if not the, most heralded prospect in this division. Has Nogueira still got it? Is this matchup too much for Velasquez at this early point in his career? Who do you like in this one?
