After the traumatic loss to Frank Mir at UFC 92, last December, Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira stayed in the U.S. to do, last Saturday (7th), a knee surgery, in San Diego. “Minotauro had a knee surgery and will be back to Brazil next weekend…He shouldn’t have done this fight with Mir, his knee was going out all the time”, said Luiz Alves, his Muay Thai coach.
“He was supposed to fight Randy (Couture), but I don’t know. They haven’t confirmed it yet, and Couture also did a surgery in his elbow… But I prefer this fight, it’ll be good to Rodrigo. They want this fight and I believe it won’t be that difficult to Rodrigo. It’s a tough fight, but I think Randy has no knockout power in his punch and, on the ground, Rodrigo will submit”, bets.
