MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani caught up with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at the UFC heavyweight's training center just days after his UFC 134 win over Brendan Schaub. "Big Nog" talked about his health during and after the fight, his performance in front of his home crowd, how he was upset by Schab's pre-fight comments, who he wants to fight next, when he would like to retire and more.

I see nothing wrong with him asking for top guys. I don't expect him to say, "I want Christian Morecraft!"

Agreed. I believe his win over Schaub was simply a matter of catching lightning in a bottle.

I'd like to think he's back to being the old Nog, but I can't force myself to believe it. If I were a betting man, I'd put money on his next fight being his last fight in the UFC.

I didnt expect Nog to beat Schaub, but he did. IMO, much respect to him, but hes a member of the previous generation of fighters, and the new breed is better. He wont make a title run. I think Brock is just too big and powerful for him.

I could of swore BigNog was going to use his KO of the Hybrid to retire on. It would have been great! Vintage pride BigNog infront of his hometown crowd! Any other fight he takes is going to result in a repeat of Nog vs. Cain! Hang em up Noggy!

I'm thinking they'll make Mir vs. Overeem and Lesnar vs. Nog
