Nogueira wants Mir, then retirement
After the fight, Nogueira's manager spoke to MMAFighting about his fighter's future plans:
So was that the last time we'll ever see "Big Nog" fight? According to one of his managers Jorge Guimaraes, Nogueira might have other plans.
"Maybe a last fight against Frank Mir to square off and retire," Guimaraes responded moments after the loss when asked if Nogueira will walk away from the sport.
"He mentioned that way before his fight against Roy Nelson was scheduled. He just can't live without avenging these loses."
