Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Wants A Re-Match With Frank Mir

New, 12 comments

That's the word according to Nogueira's manager Jorge Guimarães:

The UFC didn’t say anything yet, it’s too soon. Depending on the result of Frank Mir vs. Shane Carwin fight, we’d lot to have a rematch with Frank Mir.

Of course Nogueira and Mir fought back at UFC 92 with Mir becoming the first guy ever to finish Nogueira, doing so in the second round of the fight.  However, it was reported that Nogueira was injured going into the fight and had been hospitalized with a staph infection prior to the fight as well.  Frank Mir didn't like the fact that 'excuses' were being made for Nogueira afterwards and felt like people were not giving him enough credit for the win.  Nogueira did look much better in his next fight against Randy Couture at UFC 102, but was dominated in his last outing against Cain Velasquez at UFC 110.  Of course Frank Mir will be taking on Shane Carwin at UFC 111, and if Carwin were to beat Mir a Nogueira/Mir fight could potentially happen.  With Nogueira's performance at UFC 110, do you think the outcome would be the same as it was at UFC 92?
