In a recent video interview for Affliction – the clothing brand, not the extinct MMA promotion – Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira talked about his epic victory over Randy Couture and mentioned a possible fight with current heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar. He expressed just how important his victory over Couture at UFC 102 was for him, stating, “It was a dream fight for me. When I started fighting, he was the champ and I was the beginner.”
Nogueira also commented on what he was able to get done against “The Natural” inside the cage.
“It was a great fight, he was tough,” he noted. “But my hands were faster than his. I tried to get him in a couple of submissions, but he escaped from everything. He’s a very good fighter, a very good athlete. Every two punches he landed, I gave back four.”
Minotauro later went on to shed some light on what’s next for him inside the octagon, and even went as far as to call out the current champion.
“They’ve asked me to fight again in December. My main goal is to fight Brock Lesnar. He’s big, but I have better skills than him.”
