There's still some fight left in this old Pride dog, after all.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira spoke with Tatame recently to make a brave forecast of his upcoming fight against Brendan Schaub at UFC 134 on Aug. 27.

"(Mine will be "Fight of the Night"). I'll submit him. It'll be a good bout. He (Schaub) is a warrior. It'll be a pretty busy fight for the heavyweight division."

This coming from a man who will enter the cage having been away from action for a full 18 months. Not only that, he'll also be returning from multiple surgeries to both his hips and knees.

To further illustrate how tall his order is, he'll be contending for the "Fight of the Night" bonus with match-ups like Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami and Forrest Griffin vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

Good luck.

Has "Minotauro" been hit one too many times in his "Big Noggin?" Or will he really go out there and make it happen?
