Big Nog: ‘In The UFC Or Not, I Want To Fight Fedor Again’


“He’s such an icon for the sport. If he’s healthy and feels like fighting again, he should. The MMA world loves to watch him perform. There is always room for big icons like him. Tito Ortiz is still fighting, so is Quinton Jackson and Cro Cop. People want to see them fight. Sometimes there’s a new kind winning the belt, but what about the guy you rooted for your whole life? I don’t know if Fedor would end up in the UFC, whatever the promotion he lands, I would like to fight him one day. He’s a great fighter.”

UFC heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, or Big Nog, is gearing up to fight Stefan Struve at UFC 190 on Aug. 1. Even with that fight coming up, Big Nog couldn’t resist the chance to throw his name into the hat as one of the fighters who would like to fight Fedor Emelianenko. He told Combate that he wants to fight him again, even if it’s not in the UFC.
