Man crush- Antônio Rodrigo 'Minotauro' Nogueira

Sorry for the shit music in this clip, the people who make these videos always seem to love this type of stuff.

Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, born june 2, 1976 in Brazil. Current interim UFC heavyweight champ. He's been doing judo since he was 5, got run over by a truck when he was ten and went into a coma for a few days. As a result of this he lost a bit of his liver and a rib, but he still manages to be a serious bad ass and has dealt with some giants in mma such as the 6'8'' Tim Sylivia.
He's a coach on the current UFC show, and he will fight Frank Mir at the end of the series. I fucking hope he wins.
I think he looks half beast or something like an animation from Jason and the argonauts, his nickname is even Minotauro. That might be the best nickname ever.
