Antonio Rogerio Nogueira considers Tito Ortiz a legend in the sport of MMA, and that’s why he asked the UFC for this fight.

Nogueira was actually scheduled to fight Ortiz earlier this year, but an injury sidelined the future UFC hall of famer, delaying their bout.

Now it’s back on again and Nogueira is healthy after suffering a neck injury prior to his last scheduled fight in August.

According to Nogueira, the fight with Ortiz is something he’s always wanted and he looks forward to testing him in the Octagon on Saturday night.

Check out the full interview with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira prior to UFC 140:

  • A lot of people are counting Tito out in this one. I think it’s a lot more evenly matched than what the chatter suggests it is and I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if Tito pulled out the win.

    I think Tito wins this one. Lil Nog has trouble with wrestlers.

    Bader held him down

    Davis held him down

    Brilz got robbed against him

    I see Tito holding him down for the W.

    Lil Nog’s got this !
