Poor Lil Nog. Hopefully he pulls out with an injury and avoids getting murdered. There aren't many guys at 205 who are worse matchups for him than Rumble.

If Rumble were smart he would just take Noggy down and beat him there...

pretty sure if they stand up he would still win but it could be a war.. fight ends much quicker if it goes to the mat.. nog better watch out for those head kicks if it stays standing too..

He's setting it up already!

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is not back to full health yet.

Nogueira has been far from injury-free over the past couple of years, as the UFC has been forced to cancel four of his match-ups since 2011. He has had scheduled bouts against Alexander Gustafsson (twice), Rich Franklin and Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua.

While ‘Lil Nog' admits that he is not yet back to perfect health, he expects to be ready in time for his UFC on FOX 12 encounter with Anthony Johnson.

"I'm not 100 percent physically yet, but I'm getting there," Nogueira told "I had two injuries. I had to undergo a knee surgery and had another back injury that forced me out of training for more than a year. But I will be at my best in two and a half months."

Never will I ever be fake, never will I follow

Whatever is left of Fábio Maldonado will be ready to replace Lil Nog if needed.
