WTF is wrong with Big Nog?
For a man with a nick name like ‘Big Nog’, those are some bold words, just saying. In parts of Cali, I suspect that nickname denotes some sort of crazy sexual act. In an interview Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira had the below to say.
From UOL Esporte about training with a gay fighter (translation by Tom Mendes):
“I have no prejudice against the gays, but I wouldn’t train with someone who’s gay. I have no malice, I don’t take our physical contact as (something) sexual. But what if the gay person has that malice of having physical contact with me, of staying there grappling? I would have no problems having a gay student in my academy, but I would rather not train with him.”
If that doesn’t say enough, yesterday he tried to give some convoluted reason for his answer to that reporter to reporter Ariel Helwani. Ariel, the Oprah of MMA, just let the answer slide and moved onto the really important questions like “Are you excited to fight in Brazil”, way to go Ariel, don’t rock the UFC boat my good man.
I however don’t have such a concern at the moment, here is my question, ‘Big Nog, What The F23K is wrong with you?’ Let’s get past the homophobia for the moment, and move onto public relations. I know for a fact the entire Blackhouse Team has a PR person, they have agents and managers as well. Didn’t someone tell Big Nog that those kinds of statements might alienate advertisers and fans alike? The devil’s advocate in me says, sure, go ahead and have those kind of idiotic, backwards, Neanderthal views about gays, but keep your F23King mouth shut in public on the subject. My non homophobic side, tells my devil’s advocate side to shut it’s pretty little hole before something gets put into it. I can see a huge debate brewing on this subject, for me there is no debate, who cares. Unless you have a communicable disease which will kill me by touching you, I don’t give a F23K about you or your life off of the jiu jitsu mat. Roll, teach me something or get tapped, end of story. Big Nog has some ideas, sadly they are echoed by many in Brazil. In a country so openly erotic and accepting of Transgender’s in their society, behind closed doors it’s a different animal altogether. I hope a Tranny show’s up to Nog’s gym and submits him, then show’s him her bigger d1cky.
