Minotauro Interested in Fight with Nelson

‘Minotauro’ Nogueira interested in fight with Roy Nelson
By Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting
"The last time Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira won two fights in a row was in 2008, when the Pride star became the interim UFC heavyweight champion against Tim Sylvia. The Brazilian veteran wants to restart his career in 2014, and he has a target.

"Following a submission loss to Fabricio Werdum at TUF: Brazil 2 Finale, 'Minotauro' believes TUF winner Roy Nelson could be his next opponent. Nelson, who last fought in October, is coming off back-to-back decision losses to Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic, stopping his 3-fight win streak."
