 Little Nog is fighting - http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Dion-Staring-2515 http://sherdog.com/news/articles/1/homeland-security-17351 "I've seen four of his fights," Nogueira said. "He likes to combine low kicks and punches, has a strong right cross punch and a couple of knockouts on his resume. I think he deserves all my respect, but I'm very self confident and well-trained." The opportunity to fight in his homeland means a great deal to Nogueira (16-3), the 32-year-old twin brother of former Pride Fighting Championships and interim UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Saturday's fight will be Rogerio's first in Brazil. "I always dreamed of fighting in Brazil and mostly in the northeast, where I was born and have part of my family and friends," Nogueira said. "It's going to be a great dream for me."

 "He is a top ten LHW. Hasnt really been tested since Pride." He didn't get many good matchups in Pride, either, outside the GP.

Why is he fighting cans?He is a top ten LHW. Hasnt really been tested since Pride. You would think being his brother got a contract with the UFC he would too.
