I finally got my wish, Nogueira is on his way to the ufc. This mma thing is getting bigger and better. I guarantee by the end of 2007, Nogueira will be ufc heavyweight champ, wether he fights couture or crocop for the title he will take it.
Name Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Nick Name Minotauro
Record 29 - 4 - 1 (Win - Loss - Draw) ( 1 NC )
Style Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Birth Date 6/2/1976
Still at the tender age of 31, he's defenately the most impressive mma fighter of our lifetime.
Im a randy fan too, randy, for me, has taken this sport to the next level twice. And only a supreme fighter of his calibre is capable of such a thing. He's the peoples champion, and always will be. Once when he beat chuck and then once again when he beat sylvia. Thats what randy will always be remembered for.
Nogueira has the sharpest submissions, is always ready to go, very athletic and i think the octagon will only improve his performances when he fights. This guy is still a young fighter and has already tasted championship status at the highest level, now in the ufc, he will do it again. The thing that seperates Nogueira from any other fighter i have seen fight, is his heart, he never quits. He's a complete fighter who has the tools to beat any heavyweight, he is the ultimate fighter and i cant wait to see this guy in the octagon. Ufc fans will love him fighting for the number one orginisation.
