He showed interest in me working with the UFC in finding new talents, which is something I already do, some kind of scout. I accepted, but I will keep training and I haven’t said if I will retire or not. The fight ended recently, I will still think about what I will do next. I like to train and I love the atmosphere of a camp. When people ask me what I like to do the most, I tell them it’s training, to perfect an armbar or whatever, I like to wake up and have a goal.”

“That’s one of the things I would think about doing before I hang up my gloves (to fight Mir). When we coached The Ultimate Fighter together, he was really harsh with his athletes, he likes to look tough. He’s inconsistent, he had four losses in a row before winning his last two.”

UFC heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, or Big Nog, told Portal do Vale Tudo that he has yet to decide if he’ll retire and take the job offer from Dana White, but did say he wouldn’t mind fighting Frank Mir again.
