"Minotauro" Noguiera would like re-match Frank Mir at UFC 107

Move over Cheick Kongo says, Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Noguiera after taking a unanimous decision win against Randy Couture last weekend at UFC 102. Now "Minotauro" would like to re-match Frank Mir at UFC 107 (where Mir is set to face Kongo) to redeem himself after being knocked out for the first and only time in his illustrious career at UFC 92 last December.

"Minotauro" Noguiera:

"If I was making excuses, I would have been making excuses right after the fight. I’m not making excuses, I’m giving you a reason…. If Mir feels it’s an excuse, then lets get in the Octagon and see whether it’s an excuse or a reason in December and settle it. I’d love to fight Frank Mir at UFC 107."

I'm sure you would love to face Mir at UFC 107 there Big Nog. Sadly Mir is set to face Kongo and has no reason to face you again at this time. Mir has already beaten Noguiera, why would he want to face re-match him so soon? It serves no purpose for the former Heavyweight Champ. Now if Noguiera were to earn himself another win and Mir were to lose to Kongo then that fight would make sense but right now it reeks of a desperate man trying to find a shortcut to the title.

Sorry, no takers here.
