If UFC Wants, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Down For TUF: Brazil Coaching Gig Vs. Shogun Rua

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira likely learned a lot about what goes on during The Ultimate Fighter when his brother was a coach on it.

Now, “Lil Nog” would like nothing more than an opportunity to coach opposite former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua during the next season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.

“I would love to, it’d be awesome,” said Nogueira, in a recent interview with Tatame. “It would be very good to me and it would be a rematch of (a) 2005 fight, which is something people wanna see.”

Nogueira lost to Rua in the Pride Grand Prix that year. His twin brother, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, coached opposite Frank Mir on a past season of TUF in the U.S.
