Antonio Rogerio ‘Lil Nog’ Nogueira is less than two weeks away from fighting undefeated light heavyweight fighter Ryan ‘Darth’ Bader at UFC 119. Nogueira believes that his experience will work in his favor compared to a rising star who is working his way up the rankings. The Brazilian fighter guarantees UFC fans that he will gives Bader his first MMA career loss.
From Lil’ Nog:
“I guarantee that I’m going to give (Ryan Bader) his first loss of his career. It would be very gratifying for me to show my fans a great show and knock out Bader the same way I knocked out Luis Cane. Bader is a new guy, he wants to establish himself in the rankings. I’m an older guy. With more experience and my experience will work in my favor, and help me beat Bader in this fight. He definitely has a lot more experience in wrestling that I do. But I think what I’m missing in my wrestling game he is missing in his jiu-jitsu game on the ground. So I think if he takes the fight to the ground he is going to get caught. So it’s probably wiser for him to keep the fight standing up.”
