Brazilian martial arts leader has a problem with the gay

His name is Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and apparently he’s a big deal.

“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.”

Check out his photo via the link. I’m always intrigued when guys who set off my gaydar are virulently anti-gay.
