“Big Nog” Fought And Beat Dave Herman With A Broken Rib | UFC NEWS


“Fractured my rib three weeks ago on my right side. I went to the doctor, I took a local anesthetic to be able to train and when he (Dave Herman) gave me a shot there, gave me a shortness of breath and took a swung from one side to the other to see what had happened, had broken. There was a big break, but got scared when the kick hit him.”

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, the man known to many as “Big Nog” recently told Brazilian media outlet, Sensei Sport TV, that he walked in the cage with a rib fracture in Rio.

During the fight the rib broke even worse, but that apparently didn’t stop the former interim heavyweight champion from getting the fight to the ground and submitting Herman.

    • some guy says:

      dude, your a fuckin joke! Big nog has been through so many battles in the ring and you gonna talk some shit? i know for a fact you would never go thru the damage he has ever had to endure! your a clown and you should never talk shit on a true legend of the sport!

    Big Nog Is A Machine, I Hope There Is A 3rd Fight With Frank Mir.

    • Scotty says:

      No third fight, it doesnt need to happen.. Mir TKO’d him which big nog said he just got over staph, so they made rematch and Mir Broke nogs arm with a kimura..

  5. Nick says:

    Why do Brazilians always say they’re injured after a fight. Win or lose. That would of been his excuse if he lost. I mean can’t you just not say anything?

    • Xaninho says:

      If the reporter asks about the kick to the ribs and if it hurt he will get an answer.

      You people complaining about fighters reveiling their pre-fight injuries should realize that they get asked about it in interviews and they’re just giving an honest answer.

    • jersey says:

      Exactly. They claim they were injured win or lose. If they lose its an excuse, if they win they wanna look extra tough. Everybodys injured somewhat. Why cant they just keep it to themselves

  6. Seedy says:

    Fucken love big noog… Maddest ****

  7. 757 says:

    Big Nog is a beast and a legend in the sport.

  8. Jasplanet says:

    Yeahh well brazilians makes the ufc doctors seem retarded. Broken ribs, fractured blablabla, everything seems to get past these incompetent doctors. Its probably danas cousins getting hired cuz theyr family, its like all the spots were taken except the doctor roles.
    Even i can spot a cracked rib, x-ray that shit and it shows as a dark line. Hope the UFC sees this cuz im clearly qualified for the ufc doctor role.

    Herman threw the fight. Nog looked like a 75 yr old zombie. If Herman isn’t cut then for sure it’s a wash but if it wasn’t cut his ass anyway for getting taken down by a dead man walking with love handles. I love Big Nog don’t get it twisted but that shit seemed strange.

  10. maurice says:

    herman didnt throw the fight. wtf? how about big nog is just a better boxer then herman. herman was throwing kicks and punches with his chin in the air…just like all his other fight. i knew way b4 fight night that big nog was going to either get the ko, or drop him and sub him..since big nog returned from surgery on his hips, his movement has completely changed. he put shaubs lights out, ALMOST tko mir without breaking a sweat, and fuked up herman and made him eat his words. goin to get real interesting if nog continues to climb the ranks.

    Those old school fighters are freaking tough
