in the Light Weight Division? Ryan Bader's Win over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira? Or Nogueira's loss?
September 28, 2010  01:11 AM ET

My bad, I meant Light Heavy Weight Division...

Nogs loss.

Nogs loss.

He was the man in pride, and I always hoped he could return to that 2006 form. Doesn't look like he will though.

I say Baders win. I have been saying it for months that Lil Nog has fought cans in his last 6 to 8 fights. With Bader winning it opens up so many different match ups for the UFC. If Bader gets a shot at Rashad in the near future I can see him beating Rashad. He will most def out wrestle Rashad. "Yes I am saying Rashad beats Shogun when he comes back from injury"

The UFC should not match up Bader and Bones. Why force one of your up and coming fighters to fight each other and canx one out? The UFC did the same thing with Cain and Dos Santos in the HW division.

Thats the problem... why is the UFC scared about letting a young fighter take a loss? Let Bones and Bader fight so that Bones can knock Bader back a few steps... I have never been impressed with Bader and his win over Little Nog did nothing to help that, the entire fight I was just thinking how Bones would mop the floor with Bader... I hope we get the chance to see that fight.

Money!!!!!! That is the reason they won't let them fight... If both are undefeated they can hype both of them even more, and when they do fight the loser can still be hyped.... The UFC is always about money.

Ryan win by far, the Nog in the UFC haven't been dominating and are way overrated. In pride they where the man but in the UFC they will never be champs. Ryan got a boost from his win and is heading to be a contendor for the belt. I would like to see Ryan Bador vs JDS now that would be a brawl. But as the nog bro they are both overrated and not that good in the ufc.

after thinking about it Bador fights in 205 so that fight will prob never happen since JDS is in heavy weight.

I agree the Bader win is more impactful. I thought that Bader was on his way up on Nog on his way down going into the fight. Bader vs Jones is what the next fight will probably be.

who do u think takes that one? I dont see anyone aside from Machida or Rua even standing a chance against Jones.

I don't see the UFC matching up Bader and Jones... Kind of like what they have done with JDS and Cain in the HW division. I would like to see Bader and the winner of the Forrest and Franklin fight. While Jones would get the winner of Lyoto and Rampage

I think Bader is ready to step up but not jones just yet, he is a little too young. I like how the UFC brings up their fighters.

I don't see Jones just yet winning over likes of Rampage and Evans, I want him to keep improving and get stronger before entering the cage against a very tough vet. Jones will one day rule the 205 division.

I don't see anyone outside of Rua stopping him. I think that they should put him up against Machida first, just to see how he responds the the level of frustration that Machida can induce.

see comment 12... Said the same thing about Jones.

i agree here....machida would not frustrate jones. Jones can keep the distance just like machida and come in quick with an elbow or kick. lets just hope that jones is not a mental case (see bj penn) and does not let the fame get the best of him where he starts to party more than train (see chuck Lidell)
