Antonio Rogerio

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is a Pride and UFC veteran and one of the world’s top MMA fighters in the 205 lb weight division. Though for years he was overshadowed by his twin brother Antonio Rodrigo – who fought some of the sport’s most memorable battles at heavyweight – the younger Nogueira (often known as “Little Nog”) has accumulated far less punishment and may prove to have the longer fight career as a result.

Rogerio has struggled somewhat against the better wrestlers in the UFC’s light heavyweight division, barely edging Jason Brilz in a controversial decision victory, and then losing to skilled wrestlers Ryan “Darth” Bader and Phil Davis in his next campaigns. Clearly now a veteran of the sport, he still has a few more fights left in him but many were concerned for his health after the his last loss; a brutal knockout at the hands of Anthony Johnson
