Big Nog Has Three Secret Submissions For Struve

June 19, 2015 9:11 am by BJPENN.COM News


“It won’t be easy to take him to the ground. He is training a lot of takedown defense, so this fight could unfold completely standing up. My goal is to explore his weaknesses. I have to escape his range and avoid his knees. He also has a good jab and moves his head well. I think the best strategy for me would be to close the distance and work on strikes on the inside. But I have three submissions and three takedowns up my sleeve. I’ve been drilling them until they become second nature.”

UFC heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will face the towering Stefan Struve at UFC 190 and told Combate that although it will be tough to get the much taller fighter to the ground, the MMA legend does have a few new submissions up his sleeve.

Do you think we’ll see Big Nog pull off another submission victory in Brazil?
