The man behind Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira ground ground game trainings, Amaury Bitetti is confidence in the preparation of the UFC interim heavyweight champion for the fight against Frank Mir at UFC 92. “We’ve studied all his game, we know what he’s planning for the fight and we’ll annul him and win it on the ground. We’ll take him down, pass the guard and submit. He’s tough, focused too, but when Minotauro is well trained nobody holds him”, guarantees Amaury, who commented the trains to the confrontation, that happens in December 27th in Las Vegas, United States. “There are many people helping on his training. Me on the ground, (Rodrigo) Artilheiro no Wrestling, his brother, who is left-handed, Vitor Belfort...We are well to this fight”.
Watching Minotauro’s fights usually is a cardiac test for the fans, before the fighter finds a submission from nowhere and wins the fight, but Bitetti predicts a calm fight against Mir. “This fight has no problem, he can get some kicks, then he’ll block it and take it to the ground. If Mir tries to do a ground fight with him he’ll suffer. In this fight he won’t hurt himself very much, he will get in concentrated. I don’t know how, if in the arm, katagatame or guillotine, but he’ll submit”, bets the black-belt.
