Rogerio “Minotouro” Nogueira, twin brother of the former UFC interim heavyweight Champion Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira, didn’t have a good weekend. Without the passport, he couldn’t travel to Australia to help the heavyweight in the fight against Cain Velasquez, and he watched his brother get knocked out in the first round.
“He was training a lot to this fight. I’ve seen him training and he’s great on Wrestling, ground… Everybody always expect a good fight from him”, ‘little’ Nogueira said to TATAME.com, believing on his brother’s return after the sixth loss in 40 fights. “We believe a lot in him and we’re sure he’ll be back with great fights. It won’t change anything. You can expect a stronger Rodrigo”.
