UFC Quick Quote: Third time the charm for Herring?

heath herring at ufc 73 vs minotauro"If you want my Texas analogy, me and [Antonio Rodrigo] Nogueira fighting is like putting two cats in a burlap sack. We get after it pretty good.... We're old hands. We've seen it all between the both of us.... When they called me to do this fight, I was like `All right, let's do it.' Nothing I haven't seen before. It's something I know how to prepare myself and what to expect. And I imagine he does as well."

-- Heath Herring -- who is healthy and has two fights under his belt inside the Octagon -- tells the Canadian Press that his experience in the cage and previous fights with his opponent at UFC 73, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, will help him win this time around. "Minotauro," a former PRIDE FC heavyweight champion, has two wins over Herring (decision, Anaconda Choke) that date back to 2001 and 2004, respectively, and is making his UFC debut this weekend.
