Three fights into his UFC career, former Pride and UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira says the best is yet to come. And though his headlining fight with Randy Couture at UFC 102 may be long overdue, he feels it’s the best opportunity possible for redemption.
“I’m gonna have a lot of people against me, but I’ve been very focused and very well-trained,” he told reporters during a media teleconference Tuesday.
For a guy that’s been in the game as long as he has, ups and downs come with the territory. The stakes, however, have doubled since he’s come to the UFC and met with mixed success.
