“Nogueira is still a very tough guy. A lot of people are on two sides of the extreme. They either think the first fight was a fluke or that he should retire. I see someone who is going to be extremely motivated who wants to get revenge, so I don’t look to overlook him at all. He’s a very legitimate submission specialist, obviously. Even when he’s 80-years old he’s gonna be dangerous on the ground. On our feet I feel I still have a very big advantage due to my athletic ability and I’m a little more fluid. Being on our feet is a great advantage (for me) and less risk of something bad happening there than on the ground.”
