Brendan Schaub: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will be the fight of my lifePosted on August 12, 2011, 03:15 PM by Joey Santosus
Rising Heavyweight contender Brendan Schaub, who will face Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 134, discusses his opponent and shares his thoughts on fighting an MMA legend in their home country of Brazil. Schaub explains that he asked for Nogueira in hopes of purposely putting himself in a "high-pressure situation," which he feels will help prepare him for a title shot.
Since coming up short against Roy "Big Country" Nelson in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 10, "The Hybrid" has went on a four-fight winning streak, including victories over Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Gabriel Gonzaga. Against "Big Nog," Schaub will look to solidify himself as one of the division's top contenders.
