Rogerio Has Hard Words For Sonnen

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

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was set to rematch Shogun Rua on June 15, but he was pulled out of UFC 161 with a back injury. Slowly returning to training, he eyes the winner of the main event for next Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 26, as he predicts Shogun’s victory in devastating fashion over Chael Sonnen.

"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."
If Shogun wins, a fight with Lil Nog next is very appealing and makes sense in the rankings.

Hendo is better than Sonnen. The two careers don't compare in the slightest. Sonnen has never even won a major belt, much less two at once. Hendo is the man Chael dreams he'll one day grow up to become.

Sorry, it was a very short sighted statement on my part, I was thinking about their recent years.

Agreed. We need more old school Pride match ups in the UFC. If only to appease the crotchety old Pride never die fans.

It's ok, you're new to the sport obviously. There's this thing on the interweb called "google". If you type a fighter's name into it, it'll magically tell you about all the fights they've ever been in! It's so keen!

Whatever. Right now... today... Sonnen would beat Henderson. For me, when a fighter is claimed to be "better" then another, it means if they fight right now. Its not a request for historical comparison.

A lot of these Brazilian fighters are honestly talking/acting like cowards (except for Shogun). Lil Nog, Wandy, and Belfort are talking crap about Sonnen, yet coming up with excuses as to why they don't want to fight him.

Nog thinks Sonnen will only be able to take shogun down twice?

This fight has a big chance that Sonnen will take shogun down multiple times and hold him there.

P.s, pride Dan Henderson is not the same as current day old slow ' lowkick, big right til the cows come home' Dan Henderson.

Cut the bullshit.

I offered the apology because I prescribe to the mindset of a fighter only being as good as his last fight. I loved Hendo back in the day, but present day Dan Henderson should probably just retire. Past accomplishments are one thing, present day is a whole different ballgame. For you to suggest that because I think the way I do, that I must be new to the sport, is just ignorance on your part.

That's what earns you fights: Previous performances. I'll agree Sonnen has a chance to lay and pray anyone anytime. If he doesn't get choked out. Also, Sooj, I need to borrow your crystal ball as American football is beginning and I'd like to know who is going to the super-bowl this year.

Well those are all has-beens while Sonnen is a never-was. They want exciting fights with names that matter, not some guy nobody will be talking about in five years. You can't really blame them for that.
