Yesterday TAGG Radio reported that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira’s next opponent will be Frank Mir.

However, after talking with the agent for Mir, Dean Albrecht, MMAjunkie.com has learned that a match against Nogueira is not a done deal. In fact, Mir’s camp appears to be campaigning for a match vs. Cheick Kongo.

Let’s see… Mir vs. Antoni Hardonk and now he wants Kongo? Notice the trend of guys who have terrible takedown defenses? It’s a smart strategy but a very transparent one.
