"According to Luiz Aves, Nogueira’s Muay Thai coach, this fight can happen. "It’s not 100% yet, but Rodrigo might fight in December. When I was in the US, I heard some rumors that he could face Napão (Gonzaga)… It’s not right yet, but I heard that he could fight him, then would move forward to the title. I think, by the middle of 2010, we’ll fight for the title again"."
Wow I wonder what the fights on the main card will be:
Champ B.J. Penn vs. Diego Sanchez (for lightweight title)
Kenny Florian vs. Clay Guida
Cheick Kongo vs. Frank Mir
Thiago Alves vs. Paulo Thiago
Paul Buentello vs. Todd Duffee
Alan Belcher vs. Wilson Gouveia
Houston Alexander vs. TBA (Kimbo??)
Kevin Burns vs. T.J. Grant
Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
As for the fight, I was not convinced with Nog's performance against Randy. But Nog is hard to finish. Hard to predict.
Not sure about this one. If it stays standing , i see Gonzaga being able to land one of his head kicks. Dude is a big and has a ton of power behind his kicks. However if it goes to the ground , i can see Nog winning this fight.
