Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Discusses PRIDE, Fighting Roy Nelson, More
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.09.2014

- Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira recently spoke about his time in PRIDE and more. Here are the highlights…

On His PRIDE Days: "I really miss that time. It was a wonderful time in my life, and I would not change a single thing that took place in the organization."

On PRIDE vs. UFC: "I think there isn't much comparison (between PRIDE and the UFC); they are two different realities," Nogueira said. "Thank God I managed to become champion in both organizations, but of course I reached my apex fighting in Japan."

On The Highs and Lows of His Career: "The high points were the victory over Bob Sapp, my first fight in Brazil [UFC 134], and [winning] the PRIDE and UFC championships," Nogueira said. "The lows were the various injuries I've had throughout my career. When dealing with some of my injuries, I didn't know if would be able to fight again."

On Recovering From Injuries: "With age, recovering from injuries becomes increasingly difficult," Nogueira said. "But it's a normal part of our lives as fighters. I have not yet planned out my life after fighting. I do have several other ventures outside of MMA, so I intend to keep the ball rolling after I retire."

On Fighting Roy Nelson: "Nelson is a tough fighter," Nogueira said. "I know he has never been submitted or knocked out in the UFC, but I believe I have the capacity to do it. I am also prepared to go all five rounds if necessary."
