Valverde: Mir will find out how good Nogueira's Jiu Jitsu is
Daniel Valverde: "Mir will find out how good Nogueira's Jiu Jitsu is"
New Daniel Valverde interview.
On Mir, Nogueira and Magalhaese...
"Frank Mir will find out how good Nogueira's Jiu Jitsu is on December 27th if the fight goes to the floor. Iíve been training with a lot of great Jiu Jitsu guys and Nogueira is the best I have ever trained with. I had the chance to roll with Vinny while at the show and he did not tap me out. If it was to be a Jiu Jitsu competition, I would win by points and he is 30 pounds heavier than me. I think he is a good Black Belt, but nothing extraordinary. I would like to face him in a Jiu Jitsu competition."
"Vinny called me and Nogueira to apologize and he said that he didnít mean to disrespect us, but everything that he said on the show is taped. He is not a bad guy; he just thinks that he is better than he really is."
"I think Frank Mir has good Jiu Jitsu. Heís dangerous, but Nogueiraís Jiu Jitsu is much better. In addition, Nog has better hands and cardio than Mir. He didnít change his training for this fight."
"Definitely Nogueira will try knocking him out and finish the fight standing up."
nog is a really good black belt in jiu jitsu but in grappling competitions he would not be a top guy. I mean he would not beat guys like xande and roger but it is understandable as Nog is an mma fighter not a jiu jitsu competitor.
