“I’m nervous!" Junior 'Cigano'* dos Santos told GRACIEMAG.com. "My manager called me, said he wanted to put me in the UFC house, and I told him about the language problem. He replied: ‘If they’re not worried about it, why would you be?’ That made me more confident and I agreed to it."
“Rodrigo (Minotauro Nogueira) did the show with Frank Mir and told me it’s a good thing to do, that there my life will be divided into pre-TUF and pro-TUF, that that will be clear in my life. I was really stoked!”
“It’s the fight that came about to prove, once and for all, that I deserve a shot at the belt. I have to be calm, prudent, and fight him (Brock) intelligently. I have to keep on my toes not to let myself fall into his game."
As is the rule on the reality show, there should be plenty of provocation. “I feel that’s part of it and I’ll even like it. If I understand what he says, I may even have a comeback for him! Truth is, whatever happens in the house will be settled in the octagon, that’s for sure!"
