"I train harder when I'm fighting a striker, I really like training Muay Thai, Boxing. I guess I can do a good fight. I'm a good fighter in the end of the fights, I can hold my impulse and do better later, I was born a counter attacker and that's how I have greater chances to get the knockout. Tito Ortiz came to strike against me, and I got the knockout. Cane tried to stand-up and I got to knock him out. I can do a good fight against striker. It's not because I don't know wrestling. Yes, I'm actually a lot better defending the takedowns, after I left Pride I had to adjust because the rules and the cage are different. I guess I can fight anywhere, but I rather stand-up because fans dig the knockouts and I'm a fighter who likes giving the KO to the fans. I'll go for the knockout until the end, absolutely. I'm moving forward. I'll try to do a good fight to be in a good spot on this ranking. I'll go for the knockout and I'll stay among the top three of the division."
UFC light heavyweight contender Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (via Tatame.com), who rebounded from back-to-back decision losses to finish Tito Ortiz by technical knockout at UFC 140 last December, looks to continue his winning ways against hometown favorite Alexander Gustafsson when they hook 'em up in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV 2 on April 14 in Sweden. Anyone think the Brazilian is durable enough to get past one of the division's brightest young prospects? Let's hear some early predictions for the 205-pound slugfest in the comments section below.
