I’ve long held that if any dairy company would like to push their egg nog into the 18-34 demographic market, they would have to look no further than Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira and his smaller genetic incarnation, Antônio Rogério Nogueira. Big Nog and Lil Nog could collectively run the egg nog industry from now until the black hole in the center of the universe sucks us all in. The egg nog industry would be on permanent lock, if only they would let the Nogueira brothers represent them. Until then, we have to deal with inferior dairy manifestations like Yoo-Hoo, Starbuck’s Latte, and that bottled milk shake in 7-11 that always seems like a good idea at the time until you realize that you’ve just ingested a life’s worth of artificial chemicals and there’s no amount of regurgitating that will fix it.
Not even Pride FC utilized Big Nog’s moniker properly when he was their heavyweight champion. Those fellows should have hired me to direct their marketing department. I definitely wouldn’t have pushed Rampage Jackson to the Japanese as a homeless guy that ate out of trash cans, like we saw back in 2003.
If you never saw the first Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Fabricio Werdum fight, then it’s probably because you weren’t into MMA while Pride FC was at its peak. Don’t worry, we’re not going to tell all your friends. We can keep that secret between us — and everyone reading this article.
Fortunately for you, ZUFFA has released the Big Nog vs. Werdum fight in its entirety to get everyone prepared for when the two duke it out this weekend at UFC on Fuel TV.
