Nogueira: ďIíve fought the best, but I have much more to show youĒ

Quote:
Former UFC and Pride heavyweight champion, Rodrigo ďMinotauroĒ Nogueira is focused on the recovery process of his injuries and is already planning a possible return on UFC Rio. On an exclusive interview given to TATAME, the black belt talked about the importance of investing in marketing to make MMA popular, demonstrated a wish of confronting Brock Lesnar, chosen Anderson Silva as the greatest pound by pound of the world, guaranteed that he still has many work ahead of him and talked about other subjects that you can check on the chat here below.



Whatís the importance of these marketing actions that youíve been doing to enlarge MMAís market?



Itís pretty important, thereíre fans and many people who like MMA, itís a new group of fans, itís a sport that can be watched by people of all ages: a teenager and a 60 year old guy may be watching MMA nowadays. We have to do these things, the events, creating new MMA products and for this huge group of fans that follow MMA, also for athletes, not only the top athletes, but to all so people like it. If we create a product that the athletes use, thatís enough approval for us. If an athlete that fights in a great event uses your product, a regular person can also use it and itíll be more than enough.



How are your expectations, with the guys of X-Fight, for the selling of your product here in Rio?



I think that every product that I launched today, if itís a MMA product, itíll have great success. If itís worked the proper way, focused on the top athletes who fight in high level, everybody will see. UFC is greater than ever, this coming of UFC to Brazil will completely change things, than the Olympic Games will comeÖ I think that sports are getting to Rio de Janeiro on a great moment. I believe itíll become the capital of the sports on the world. We have great location, weíve got here before UFCís coming and I think itíll make a huge propaganda of our product.



For this card that is coming to Rio, is there any special fight youíd like to watch?



Iíd like to watch (Junior dos Santos) Cigano with Cain Velasquez. I believe itís a good thing for UFC Rio if my brother fights Ryan Bader, that guy that beat him, I think itíll be a great fight for Rogťrio. Iíd like to see BJ Penn fighting in Brazil because heís coming from Jiu-Jitsu and people follow him. I think that BJ Penn could have a rematch with Frankie Edgar, itíll also be a good fight.



How are your injuries?



Iím doing my third surgery within a month. There were three injuries that I had: my knee, my right hip and my left hip. I have these injuries for eight year, but about three years ago it started blocking me of training hard. I handled it, but I couldnít do my last fight and really, if you canít train 100%, you wonít do a good fight. I did these surgeries on the right time and Iím treating myself with the greatest hip doctor of the world, the guy guarantees Iíll be 100% for the second semester.



So, you want to fight again on the second semester of this year?



I want to fight on the second semester. If I can fight on UFC Rio itíll be perfect, but if not Iím sure that in September Iíll be prepared to fight.



Would you like to fight Brock Lesnar? How this confrontation would be like?




For sure. Cigano will fight Brock Lesnar now, but heís a guy Iíve always wanted to confront and itíd be a great fight. I enjoy fighting big guys, I think it forces me to use my speed and my guard... Iíll be better of my injuries, that were disturbing me from doing my guard, and Iíll be 100%. Iíve always been interested on fighting bigger guys.



In your opinion, whoís the best weight by weight of the world currently?



I like Anderson Silva, I believe heís the most complete one. I like BJ Penn, I think Josť Aldo is on a great phase too. I think these three are the best currently.



Youíve done almost 40 fights, and was only defeated 6 timesÖ What do you think about your career?



I think I did great fight, Iíve fought the best of my division, I didnít have an easy opponent. I really am one of the guys who fought great guys, but I have much more to show you, I am not done yet (laughs).



What are your current goals and plans for your career?



My next goal is UFC Rio and to be among the tops of UFC.

Interesting read. Do not agree that BJ Penn should fight Edgar again. That ship has sailed. Bader v Rogerio? Not really interested in that either although their fight was close. I'd rather see him rematch Brilz and perhaps win a fight that shouldn't have been his. Gain back some credibility.

Nog is undoubtedly a legend but some of his opinions are retarded. BJ/Edgar III? Bader/Nog II? Really?! Also no mention of GSP at all!

Is Big Nog a legend, yes. Why does he have such weird opinions, simple answer. He's been knocked around so much that he's a little retarded!

Yeah, he can get some good fights in but he isn't the fighter he used to be. He was never stopped before his fight with Mir and not only did Mir TKO him, but so did Cain. This proves that his chin is not what it used to be and he's on the downslope!

Well for the most part he is a very intelligent fighter. You look at him in TUF he has good english and is intelligent on his coaching. That is what got him two winners on TUF!
