Rasahd: Bout with ‘Lil’ Nog ‘made sense’

Monday, December 24, 2012

“Little Nog is trying to break into the top echelon of fighters and deservedly so. He’s a tough competitor, he has a lot of experience, and he’s been doing this for a long time. The UFC came to my manager and they wanted to put the fight together. I haven’t fought in a long time and I’m coming off a loss, so this made sense to me.

“He’s a really good boxer, a good counter boxer. But I’m faster. I’m quick. I think (speed will be my big advantage). Besides, I think I’m better looking too.

“He has good stand up. His boxing is pretty good, one of the best in the weight class. Also his ground, he has a really good ground game so I gotta be aware of the ground.”
