“Minotauro” Nogueira: “The Power of Getting Back Up”

If there is one prominent theme woven throughout both the life and MMA career of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, it’s overcoming adversity. No one knows that better than “Minotauro”, himself. In this emotional video posted to the official UFC youtube channel, the only man to hold both PRIDE and UFC gold talks about the adversity he has faced in his life. Be it a near-death experience of being hit by a truck at age ten, all the injuries that have plagued him in recent years, and many of the battles that made him a legend, Nogueira always got back up. The former champion now heads into UFC 153 to meet Dave Herman on short notice, after suffering a broken arm at the hands of Frank Mir last December. The Brazilian volunteered to fight on the card as it began to fall apart, due to a string of injuries, last month.
