    As soon as UFC announced that Cro Cop was back, Minotauro Nogueira said he wanted to be his first fight, but that didn't happen. He talks about fighting Struve and then Cro Cop in Brazil as his last fights before retiring from MMA.

    Minotauro said he just recently rewatched his fight with Mirko for the belt in 2003.

    I don't wanna see that fight again, mostly cos I don't wanna see Big Nog keep fighting like this :( Cro Cop probably KO's him

    Awesome. Finally get to see Cro Cop KO Nog like he should have and probably would have had they fought again.

    Nog vs Crocop might be in my top 5 favorites ever... but right now they should be fighting over who gets to use the shuffle board court.

    Fight make sense at this point. They're both spent. Might as well collect a nice check.

    i feel sad now every time nogeuira gets in the ring. the guy's an all time legend and seeing him getting thumped pillar to post is not a nice experience... and i believe cro cop could do that.... however the guy is going to continue to fight and if he is, this is a fight that is relevant and interesting to both parties and the fans, and would make a great fight for the ufc on a card in japan

    Would have preferred this fight instead of the Gonzaga rematch.

    Now this is a fight that makes sense, both towards the end of his career, both are shadows of his former selfs. Right now i'll give the nod to CC, Nog's grappling and wrestling are non existent in the present and even without his clasical speed advantage, CC could ko him.

    Mirko is not back for Big Nog but for Verdum and Cain

    What a sad fight that'd be. Crocop tentatively circling, Zombie Nog lumbering forward, and not much happens until a sudden finish.

    He and Werdum are actually pretty good friends if I recall correctly.

    That is one of the few winnable fights for Mirko in the UFC.

    Make it happen after Gonzaga finishes CC.

    Nog vs Loser - Gonzaga vs Nogueira would be intesting and he could fight CC after or he fights CC and hangs it up
    I really wanted to see Nog vs Barnett again

    Werdum was Mirko BJJ coach... not a good one it seems,
