Operation Rio: Brendan Schaub prepares to face Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in BrazilPosted on July 16, 2011, 05:23 PM by Joey Santosus
Rising Heavyweight contender Brendan "The Hybrid" Schaub, who will face his toughest test to date in Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 134, looks back on his victory over Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic in May and discusses facing the legendary "Minotauro" in Brazil. Schaub believes that Nogueira is the toughest guy in the division to put away, but says that outside of getting a title shot, there is no match he'd rather have.
UFC 134 is set to take place August 27th from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The landmark card will be headlined by a Middleweight title clash between division Champion Anderson Silva and challenger Yushin Okami, while Mauricio "Shogun" Rua takes on Forrest Griffin in the co-main event.
