Antonio Rogerio Nogueira feels ready for another "easy" opponentPosted on March 8, 2010, 04:36 AM by Anton Gurevich
Antonio Rogerio "Minotouro" Nogueira stated in his latest interview to the Brazilian website TATAME.com that he is ready for every challenge that may come from Ultimate Fighting Championship, even if it is another "easy" opponent:
“They only put easy opponents to face me (laughs). In my last two fights I faced a really tough guy, Luiz Cane, but it’s the way it is. I am ready for every challenge. I have a lot of experience, my training is better… I had great opportunities in my life that I did not take, but this time I won’t lose them. I’ll accept any fight; I won’t waste an opportunity to become a Champion."
Rogerio Nogueira, who is also known as "Little Nog", is currently 18-3 in his Mixed Martial Arts career, with notable victories over Alistair Overeem, Kazushi Sakuraba and Dan Henderson. "Minotouro" will face the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin at UFC 114, on May 29th.
