"Minotauro" and Henderson to Rematch
PRIDE heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira will have an opportunity to redeem the only loss on his impressive resume as he'll face Dan Henderson (12-2) December 23 at Pride 24, MaxFighting has learned. On his way towards claiming the RINGS King of Kings 2000 tournament, Henderson won a controversial split decision over Nogueira (18-1-1) in February of that year. Since that time Nogueira has 12 wins and one draw, and became the Pride heavyweight champion in November 2001 with a win over Heath Herring.
Meanwhile, Henderson has made a name for himself as one of the toughest pound-for-pound fighters in the world. He'll have his work cut out for him on Dec. 23, as the natural middleweight will face the best heavyweight in the world. -- Gross

The fight would be great anyway, but imo no need to make it a rematch, redeem the loss, neither Mino nor Dan would need this, the last fight was over, now is another one.

It is Non Title too......

This should be good...Hendo is a very well rounded fighter IMO and should be a good test to Nog...
What is their weight difference though?? Will the 10 kilo rule be observed?

Henderson is going to lose... this sucks. Minotauro just beat a 350 pound monster... I don't think he's going to have trouble with a 185 lb fighter who gains weight to fight 205. RINGS was a long time ago... Nog's come a long way since that controversial loss.
I don't like this matchup at all. Hopefully it'll be a good fight though... Mino will win IMO.

Henderson's dead! If Frank shamrock submitted Henderson in under a minute, just imagine what Nogueira would do to him now.

If hendo got submitted under a minute he got caught. This does not mean he wouldnt have been submitted anyway but bottom line is he got caught dont read to much into the time of the submission.

Henderson's a real good fighter, but my point was that Nog is even more versed in submissions than Frank is.
12-12-2002, 01:08 PM
Kimura, they already fought once.....Nog didn't submit him then. Arona didn't submit him. Hell, he's never been submitted in MMA competition.
But I do IMO that Nog will beat him rather easy this time around.

Nog by flying reverse arm triangle.
Nog will teach him a lesson...

too much skill in Mino. he has the size advantage as well. If Dan gets all the way to decision id be suprised.

it would be so cool if hendo won.. he is a lhw and better than the hw champ.. that would just be sick..
but something tells me that nog is too good and too heavy for him..

Henderson isn't even a natural LHW. He is more of a MW guy

hmm.. maybe im not sure about that but it would still be cool.. and WIERD

it will be an good fight.
they both have something to prove.
Nog can prove that he is the undisputed champion of the world and handerson can show that the discision was right..
