Little Nog: “I guarantee that I’m going to give Bader his first loss of his career”

Former PRIDE legend and heavy hitter, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira has promised to be the first man to defeat TUF 8 winner, Ryan Bader when the two meet in the co-main event of UFC 119 in Indianapolis, Indiana on September 25th, 2010.

Nogueira, speaking via, said:

“I guarantee that I’m going to give (Ryan Bader) his first loss of his career. It would be very gratifying for me to show my fans a great show and knock out Bader the same way I knocked out Luis Cane.”

“Bader is a new guy, he wants to establish himself in the rankings. I’m an older guy. With more experience and my experience will work in my favor, and help me beat Bader in this fight.”

“He definitely has a lot more experience in wrestling that I do. But I think what I’m missing in my wrestling game he is missing in his jiu-jitsu game on the ground. So I think if he takes the fight to the ground he is going to get caught. So it’s probably wiser for him to keep the fight standing up.”
