So he says…
- Antonio Rogerio Nogueira recently spoke about his upcoming bout with Anthony Johnson. Here are the highlights…
On What Beating Anthony Johnson Would Mean: "This fight is a big challenge to I getting where I want, which is fighting for the belt. It comes in a great moment. It's do or die for me. This fight probably will put me as one of the top 4 guys in the ranking."
On His Preparation For The Fight: "I feel that I'm well trained. For now I'm feeling fine. I did a great fight against Rashad. People told me that I did better sparring sessions for this fight with Johnson than last time. I had quite some time to bring the right people to help me to train takedown defense. It's not time to think about quit fighting. I'll only think about that when I stop training well."
On Johnson Being The Favorite in Their Fight: "He's coming from a good fight and a big win streak, that is why I think people are trusting him. It's normal. I went through this last time (against Rashad). My goal is to be the surprise again."
