Antônio Nogueira is a two-time champion, winning titles in the Pride Fighting Championship and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. According to his recent interview with UOL Esporte, he’s also a homophobe.
In the Portuguese-language interview (English translation by Bloody Elbow), Nogueira said, “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 problem having a gay student in my academy, but I would rather not train with him.”
Nogueira brings up a highly intelligent point! Everyone knows that you can catch the gay through touching. And of course, it makes perfect sense that a gay fighter would be more focused on having physical contact with Nogueira than on the actual sport. Just look at him! What a beauty. Someone, please fuck up his face even more. I just adore “Frankenfighters” who look like and have the intelligence of a retarded, rabid dog.
