Dave Herman knows he can make people quickly forget about his two more recent defeats when he takes on Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the co-main event of UFC 153 Saturday night.
Herman, who has been stopped by Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve, will be facing the former interim UFC heavyweight champion in his native country of Brazil, plans on shocking the world come this weekend.
This is my biggest fight to date. He is a legend and will look great on my record.
Herman, though, has offended the pride of Nogueira by saying he doesn’t feel as though Brazilian jiu-jitsu works in MMA. As a former wrestler, Herman has never been submitted inside the cage.
He’s won 20 fights by submission – but we all know BJJ doesn’t work. It’s useless. Wrestling means you don’t need to worry about jiu-jitsu. I’ve never lost by submission and I am not worried about it at all.
