Lil Nog Seeking Match With Rich Franklin


“The doctor said my knee should be alright within a month. I’ll be training 100 percent. God bless me, I’ll be fighting in June. (I wish for a fight against Rich Franklin) because we had a bout scheduled against him, I was supposed to fight him in the past and I already know what game plan to use against him. He’s a guy who likes to stand-up. It’ll be good. One left-handed fighting another left-handed is something good to see. It would be an excellent fight. I need a good fight.”

The smaller of the Nogueira twins, “Lil Nog” recently told Tatame.com that he wants to rebook that matchup with Rich Franklin that eluded him last year.

If they scrap, who ya got?

    Lil Nog is already getting over the hill but I would probably give him this fights over Franklin.

    • zoeldog27 says:

      little nog aint over the hill buddy he’s just gettin started he’s clearly the potentially better fighter of the 2 brothers he needs to step up his competion this would be a good start as he’s running out of the thing none of us can get back TIME!

      • Bobbie Dooley says:

        yeah he is a bit old! But lets look at this match up 2 old rusty fighters. Lil Nog with crap legs, and Franklin with shotty arms. it could turn out to be a battle of the 2 black knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

  2. Matt says:

    Franklin by UD

  3. andy says:

    This is one of those tough fights to call that I will choose to not make a prediction about. Should be awesome though. If it happens…

  4. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Recently Rich hasn’t been treated so well by the UFC. He isn’t scheduled to fight anyone currently but I would like to see it. But I wouldn’t pay to watch this as a main event or co-main.

    • jonesy says:

      how the fuck do you know ?? who sayd he aint been treated nice?? he has not been fighting cuz he has been injured….i think he is pretty happy with the ufc….what is the big secret that only u know that rich has not been treated well???

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        I know he has been injured you asshole! Guess what? Shane Carwin is also inured. You know how I know that? We get all of our news from the same damn place! Also you don’t fucking know me! You don’t know if I know Rich Franklin personally and if I said I did I wouldn’t expect anyone to believe me anyways. Someone should euthanize your old ass because you’ve grown too cynical for your own good.

        I’m tired of you fucking racist trolls on this website just to be provocative for the sake of being provocative. It’s well known that he’s been displeased with UFC/Dana White since his fight with Forrest Griffin. Quit being a turd.

  5. jbeamazing says:

    I say rich franklin wins by staph infection lol nah lil noggy would win that

  6. jonesy says:

    i say lil nog can take this…rich is more rusty then nog…after nog an tito i believe nog wiilll beat franlin …submission..the way the mirr big nog 2 should have ended

  7. Nick says:

    Not a fan of either Nog brother to be honest. I think Rich would take it.

  8. Dick Diaz says:

    rich is kind of small at 205 lb… hasn’t been having good performances at this weight.

    • Bud Dickman says:

      well he can’t go back down to 185 he wasnt doing so hot there and doubt he will do any better in that division with its current roster. Always wanted to see him drop to 170 just for the hell of it
