Rogerio Nogueira: "My brother will be back"

Rogerio Nogueira: "My brother will be back"


Despite his brother’s heavy loss to up and coming heavyweight Cain Valasquez, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira promises we’ll see back Nog return soon.

“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. 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.”

Despite usually acting as a corner man for his brothers fights, while his brother does the same for him, Little Nog was unable to be there to see his brothers loss due to being unable to obtain an Australian passport.

Little Nog will have his second fight at UFC 114 on May 29th against former LHW champ Forrest Griffin

    I dont consider valasquez an up and coming heavyweight hes here and been here since he joined the UFC and won every fight

  • Daniel Cassidy

    while i agree to a point, i personally consider him up and coming as he’s still only 8 fights, and has a long way to go

  • Ninja

    Nog should rematch cro cop, that would be interesting

  • clasonic13

    it doesn’t make any difference how many fights a fighter has it’s the opponents that put you at the top of the ranks and now that he has beat a top contender he will face another top contender
