Antonio Rodrigo ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira is set to make his octagon return with a rematch against former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir. Nogueira feels very comfortable coming into this fight, hoping to produce a better outcome against Mir this time around.
Nogueira vs Mir 2 is scheduled to take place at the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indiana on September 25th as part of the UFC 119 main event.
“I think it will be a good fight for me. In the past time I couldn’t perform well but now I can do better. It’s a fight that I always wanted and happened. I already had some bouts in my career that I lost, but whenever I had the chance to get revenge, I fought better. I will try to do the same this time. It’s tough to plan what is going on in a fight like this because Frank is a guy who fights well either on the mat or standing. I’ll feel it on time. If we go to the ground, I like it, but if it’s to exchange on the feet, I like it, too. I’ll be ready for everything.”
