Mauricio Rua appears to be set to take on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira again sometime in June in a re-match of their epic PRIDE bout that took place back in 2005.
According to Brazilian website tatame.br, the two MMA icons are set to clash on a yet to be named card sometime in June of this year.
UFC officials however have not confirmed the fight or even the event as of yet.
The two veteran's previously clashed back at "Pride Critical Countdown 2005" in an epic bout that Rua won via unanimous decision.
The 21-5 Nogueira is currently riding a 2 fight win streak beating Tito Ortiz and then most recently Rashad Evans at the beginning of February.
Rua who sports a very similar 21-7 record has put together a very middle of the road 3-3 record in his last 6 fights where he most recently lost to surging Light Heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson back in December.
