Saturday night’s UFC 190 may feature one of the UFC’s biggest stars in its main event (ahem, Ronda Rousey), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some worthwhile names fighting elsewhere on the card. There are, and one of them just happens to be Brazilian legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, a.k.a. “Big Nog”.
Big Nog, and his dance partner Stefan Struve, have literally given their bodies to the sport – Nogueira by the crippling broken limbs sustained and Struve by the near-death experiences his heart problems incurred. And given more time, they will give more of themselves until there’s nothing left for a commission to regulate but a sack of smashed bones. So yeah, they’re worth tuning in for, if for no other reason than we know they’re going to swing wild and probably hurt themselves further.
If you’re still not convinced, here’s a nice video the UFC posted on their behalf. Check it out.
