“I don’t like it, it makes me nervous, man. I never liked it. Rodrigo tricked me, because my fight was scheduled first.”

“A lot has changed since then. I was very focused on boxing, but now I have improved my takedown defense. I have been facing a lot of wrestlers, so I have been able to defend most takedowns well. I’m intensifying muay thai and jiu-jitsu, too. The first fight left a big hype, so now people wait for a great rematch. I’m preparing to do another fight like that one. Last year I injured myself, but now I’m back and I have been able to train all those six months this year. I’m confident.”

Rogerio┬áNogueira, aka Lil Nog, isn’t so sure about fighting on the same card as his twin brother. He told Combate that and that his fight with Shogun Rua will still be a great one even though it’s 10 years after their first scrap.
