Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira OddsFormer light heavyweight UFC champion Rashad Evans return to the octagon against Brazilian Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Minotoro one of the most important battles of the UFC 156 which will take place on Saturday, February 2 and will dispute headliner Belt featherweight Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar.

Two of the most representative fighters of recent times will face 205 pounds to be close to a title shot in the future. Evans, who already knows what it is to have the belt, comes from losing after five rounds against Jon Jones in a fight he was clearly exceeded. Meanwhile Nogueira suffered a 2012 plagued by injuries that kept him on the sidelines and his last appearance dates from UFC 140 when he defeated Tito Ortiz in the first assault.

Since the styles, both contestants are complete opposites.

Rashad has tremendous knockout power in one fell swoop and a privileged level control lets you choose when to take the fight to the ground. While Minotoro is more technical in appearance boxing, but needs more hits to realize a win and when he goes down, you feel very comfortable from his guard looking to finish his opponent.

 

"He is a very good fighter and a great counterpuncher. But I'm faster and I also think I look a little better but not much matter. I have no doubt that boxing is one of the best in the category and be careful of going down with him because submissions can find, "says the winner of the second season of The Ultimate Fighter who has a record of 22 wins, 2 losses and a draw.

"I studied many of his fights. He comes to fight very heavy and is very complete. He has good takedowns, good boxing and his right hand is dangerous. It will be a great challenge for me and these challenges are what make me push myself even more. I was a long time without going to the gym in 2012 by injuries in my knee and now I want to recover those lost months as quickly as possible, "said the Brazilian who has 20 wins and 5 professional setbacks.

From experience both inside the octagon one wonders what will happen when such opposite styles and seeing what they did before, the answer seems simple. When faced with good rappers like Quinton Jackson and Thiago Silva, Rashad looked for the takedown and tried to control the fight on the ground.

And that's what should worry more Nogueira who when he fought two of the best fighters of the category as Ryan Bader and Phil Davis was shot down and could not find any submission. Indeed, until Jason Brilz took him to one end where many felt that the decision in favor of the Brazilian had been unfair.

So the question that arises is the following exchange you seek Rashad standing with Minotoro or prefer to take the fight to the ground and not give opportunities to Brazil? Nogueira Will Evans neutralize takedowns and dominating with its excellent counter? There are few days, on February 2 will be unveiled these questions and many more.
