Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Wants To Get Back In The UFC Heavyweight Race Badly

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira seems pretty eager to get back into the octagon, but not only to fight…he wants to get back into the UFC heavyweight race as soon as possible.  He also talks about his brother’s (Antonio Rogerio Nogueira) UFC 114 controversial win over Jason Brilz.

From Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira:

“I hope [my next fight’s] soon.There’s nothing scheduled, we had Rogério’s fight this weekend, a hard fight, he did a good fight, worked on his Wrestling on the second round, won the first one, in my opinion, sure won the third and he made his game… It was a great fight! The focus was only on Rogério and now we’re starting to focus on my training, I’ll do a new camp for this next fight. Today we trained ground game, we’ve been training with kimonos, here in San Diego, two or three times a week. We started the training with the kimono and we end it without, we’re trying to improve my Jiu-Jitsu. There’s nothing scheduled yet, but I’m hoping to fight soon, I’m anxious and I have good expectations for this next battle.”
