    Default Antonio Rogerio Nogueira bashes Chael Sonnen, wants rematch with Shogun Rua

    http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/8/10...nts-shogun-rua

    "Sonnen may take him down twice, but he won’t be able to do that for five rounds," "Minotouro" told MMAFighting.com. "He will need to stand at some point of the fight and Shogun will tag him. I believe Shogun will knock him out."

    When the UFC announced Nogueira off of UFC 161 with an injury, Chael started to campaign to replace him. He got the fight, and Nogueira had to listen.

    "I hear Brazilian chicken is off the menu," Sonnen tweeted in June. "American gangster is still available if you want to send your waitress over."

    Rogerio fires back, but has no interest on facing "The American Gangster" inside the octagon.

    "That fight doesn’t interest me because I want to fight the best, and there are a lot of fighters that are better than him, including Shogun, Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans," he said. "Chael talks trash, he’s pure marketing. If we keep talking about him, that’s what he wants. He fought three times for the world title and got beat up. He tried to make his name when Anderson was fighting him injured, and we all saw what happened in the second fight."

    "Minotouro" eyes a potential return by the end of the year, and Rua’s name is in his head.

    "I want to fight again this year, absolutely," said Nogueira. "(Shogun) is good fight, a good option for me. I’m a lot better now, back to boxing training already. I have trained jiu-jitsu last Saturday and it was a little painful, but I believe I’ll be ready to train hard in a month."

    Depends which Shogun shows up. You will tell at weigh-ins.

    Shogun's often-used leg kicks and uppercuts make this an interesting clash of styles. I really like both guys but don't want to see Sonnen lose another. Hope he pulls this off.

    Yeah, he doesn't want that fight because he would get mauled.

    Seeing how a majority of chael's losses are from submissions and how mediocre he tends to do at lhw, I'd take lil nog in that fight. I'm guessing that after the shogun fight, Chael will return back to the middle weight division, unless anderson regains the title.

    I'd take any top 15 LHW in a fight against Sonnen.
