“Jiu-jitsu works and it’s an art,” said Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Antonio Rodrigo “Big Nog” Nogueira (34-7-1) has shown that he is still a threat in the UFC heavyweight division as he submits Dave “Pee-wee” Herman (21-5) at UFC 153 in front of the home crowd in Rio, Brazil.

After showing some impressive stand-up against Herman it was on the ground where Big Nog really shined with an armbar finish in the second.

Nog has rebounded from a gnarled submission at the hands of Frank Mir which kept the Pride legend out of the cage for over 10 months. Prior to the long layoff, Nog had shown improved stand-up as he took out Brendan Schaub at the UFC’s last Rio card.
