Nog comments on "The Spider's" transition to LHW

As expected, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira should be busy prepping up his coaching plans for the upcoming 8th season of "The Ultimate Fighter." But this doesn't mean "Big Nog" didn't have time to chat with Jason Perkins of www.FightLine.com about  his Arachnoid homie's (I know it's cheesy, I'm made of cheese) move to the prestigious LHW division of the sport's biggest producer, the UFC.

"Anderson's good," gushed Nogueira. "He's got a lot of weapons, a lot of things to show. He's proven his ground and he's proven his standup. Everytime he steps in the cage he shows up fighting. He's a big guy, man. He's almost my size. He's like 210 now and he's all muscle so he won't have a problem at 205. He's very strong; he works a lot with the weights. He's much stronger now than the first time I met him. We started training together in 2002. He was like a real 185 then, but now he can be 205 easy. He can fight both 185 and 205. He can switch easy, no problem."


Check out the article as it mentions Nog's opinion of Silva regarding a bout with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as well as Anderson's work ethic as a fighter.
