Rodrigo Minotauro carries on strong in his recovery from two surgical procedures he recently underwent that kept him out of his fight with Frank Mir, at UFC 119. The fighter is already taking his first steps without the aid of a crutch and even took the time to watch The Expendables, the movie in which he had a role playing alongside Sylvester Stallone and a number of other fighters, like Randy Couture.
“According to Stallone, fighters have mean faces and would be perfect as red berets! I just watched it; it’s great,” he said over twitter, breaking his down the experience as an actor.
“My brother and I were in three scenes in the movie. I call the general at the start, speaking in perfect Spanish! Hehehe! The red berets were all fighters,” recounted the fighter, then heaping praise on Randy Couture.
“Couture performed really well in the film. He has charisma and a future as an actor. Good world, Captain America!”
Watch, in the video below, Minotauro getting back to his roots. In a Jiu-Jitsu training session with Eduardo Telles, Minotauro trains and comments on the importance of the gi in MMA.
“The gi is the foundation for everything. Your game gets tighter, whether in defense or attack,” he professes.
