“Big Nog” Shows Brendan Schaub He Has Powerful Hands

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is better known for his submission game than knockout ability, but back in 2011, Brendan Schaub found out “Minotauro” has power in his hands.

Nogueira entered the bout with Schaub holding just two knockout wins to his credit, but he made “The Hybrid” No. 3 with a first round finish in Brazil.

The former interim UFC heavyweight champion has won 21 of his 34 career fights via submission, and will look for another finish April 11 when he meets Roy Nelson at UFC Fight Night 39 from Abu Dhabi.

Check out Nogueira taking out Schaub in the video below:
