    Would Big Nog take a title shot?

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Thu Oct 25, 2012 12:54 am

    Nog has to be fighting a top guy next, and a win could make him a legit contander, Does anyone think he will be after one or would he be treating on Junior toes?

    Whos next for him anyway?

    can't see him fighting Dos Santos, they are too close.
    Hope it doesn't happen purely in the interest of Nogueira's health.

    Absolutely no way Nog and JDS would fight.

    Anfield is right for 2 reasons.

    The obvious one, plus the fact that Nog will not get near title contention.

    No I mean if JDS would loose to Cain or Overeem. I know that Nog vs JDS is the last fight that will ever happen but Im sure if Overeem or Cain would beat Junior, Nog would be in contention with a big win in his next fight...

    Wonder if that was the case would he take a shot or would he let Junior work his way back up.

    Im sure he is itching to beat Mir, he really should have won the last one. Hope they make Nog vs Mir 3 though I suppose Werdum vs Nog 2 would make sence too...

    Id say he diserves another chance of fighting a top guy, they might go the other route and put him in with Struve or someone up and coming, Nog said he wanted someone top 10 next.

    That's a bloody tough question, Although I think Nog would probably say no I feel maybe JDS would feel the same but the fact that a Title is involved will surely have to be discussed.

    I mean If lets say JDS loses to Cain, Nog wins his next fight then gets a Title shot after that said fight and beats Cain, Would JDS just stay 'in the mix' beating contenders or would Nog be more receptive to the idea of a fight beacause he feels It's the right thing to do ?

    I just don't know. scratch Laughing

    UFC matchmaking seems to be about selling PPV and advertising so I wouldnt rule out a Big Nog title shot in Brazil if JDS was to get beat.

    Or even Big Nog Vs Jones if Jones wants to test the water a HW in the next 18 months.
