In our interview prior to the fight with Mirko Cro Cop, you spoke about being two fights away from a title shot..
If I get a good "W" I think I'll be next in line for a title shot. Look, going out there to Brazil and beat Nogueira in his homeland is something that Cain, Frank Mir or Fedor never did. So yeah, I think that beating Nogueira in Brazil makes a pretty good argument for a title shot, not speaking about the fact that it's going to be my fifth consecutive victory.
What's your prediction for August 27th?
I think Nogueira will have a tough time dealing with my speed. I'll knock him out in Round 2
