'Minotoro' is UFC Bound

New, 4 comments

According to Minotauro at the UFC 102 Presser and from MMAJunkie:

he UFC will soon have a notable addition to its light-heavyweight division, according to former UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

During a media conference call to promote his upcoming UFC 102 main-event fight with Randy Couture, "Minotauro" Nogueira said his twin brother, Antonio Rogerio "Minotoro" Nogueira, will soon be announced as a UFC fighter.

Additionally, a source close to the fighter today told "Little Nog" has been scratched from a Sept. 12 Bitetti Combat show, where he was slated to fight Alex Stiebling.

Hmmm, looks like the UFC is snatching up a ton of talent, maybe to combat Strikeforce from having any solid fighters out there for the picking.  This in my opinion is a great acquisition for the UFC's already packed light heavyweight division and should really help to get some quality match ups out there.  What do you guys think?
