Heavyweights Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum will be the next Ultimate Fighter: Brazil coaches, according to a report by SporTV.
TUF: Brazil 2 is expected to begin in March with welterweights competing. The first season of the reality show from Brazil featured two weight classes and Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort as coaches.
Nogueira (34-7-1) is a former interim UFC heavyweight champion who recently defeated Dave Herman in his return fight. “Minotauro” suffered a gruesome arm injury in a loss to Frank Mir in 2011.
Werdum (16-5-1) has went 4-2 during two stints with the UFC. He has earned back-to-back wins over Roy Nelson and Mike Russow.
