Younger brother of ‘Big Nog’, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira may already be looking at a return to the Octagon against ‘The Huntington Beach Bad boy‘, Tito Ortiz according to Tatame.com. Lil Nog recently suffered his first loss in the UFC against the undefeated, Ryan Bader.
His rumored next opponent, Ortiz has lost four of his last five, but also carries the record for the longest title run in the UFC light heavyweight division. In Ortiz’s recent fight at UFC 121 against Matt Hamill, Ortiz may have took a unanimous decision loss but looked the best he has in his career according to analyst.
According to Lil Nog, nothing has been agreed or signed as of yet, but has heard the rumors of the match-up happening.
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira:
“I’ve heard some rumors of this fight, but there’s nothing signed. In my last fight they said about (Quinton) Rampage and they changed to Ryan Bader.”
