"I think it will be a good fight for me. In the past time I couldn’t perform well but now I can do better. It’s a fight that I always wanted and happened. I already had some bouts in my career that I lost, but whenever I had the chance to get revenge, I fought better. I will try to do the same this time. It’s tough to plan what is going on in a fight like this because Frank is a guy who fights well either on the mat or standing. I’ll feel it on time. If we go to the ground, I like it, but if it’s to exchange on the feet, I like it, too. I’ll be ready for everything”.
Former UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is out for revenge when he takes on Frank Mir at UFC 119 this September, training with teammates André Galvão and Rafael Feijao in Brazil. “Big Nog” is also slated to hook up with superstars Junior dos Santos and Anderson Silva to finish his camp and avenge the first knockout loss of his illustrious career. If completely healthy, is Nogueira able to outstrike Mir with his boxing? And if it goes to the ground, does he hold a superior advantage? Let’s hear it, Maniacs!
