Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum reportedly have agreed to serve as coaches on the upcoming second season of "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil."

SportTV first reported the coaches, though UFC officials have made no formal announcement, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) could not immediately confirm the plans.

According to the report, contracts haven't been signed, but verbal agreements are in place.

"TUF: Brazil 2," which is expected to feature welterweight fighters, begins filming in early 2013 with an expected debut in March 2013. More than 300 UFC hopefuls recently attended in an open tryout in Rio.

"TUF: Brazil" was the first-ever international edition of the long-running reality competition series. The show, which featured Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort, debuted in March and aired on Globo in Brazil (with solid ratings). UFC.com and FUEL TV carried it in the U.S.

Following "TUF: Brazil 2," Nogueira (34-7-1 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Werdum (16-5-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) will fight in the tradition season-ending coach-vs.-coach fight. It actually marks a rematch between the two fighters; Nogueira handed Werdum a decision loss at a 2006 PRIDE event in the opening round of an open-weight grand prix.

EDIT: I don't care much about TUF Brazil or just TUF. But Werdum vs Big Nog!?! Hell yes!

I got a feeling this is going to be a great season of TUF Brasil. Big Nog and Werdum scrapping after the season is just like putting the cherry on top of a sundae

I called this fight sometime ago...and by calling it I said I wanted this to happen

TUF Brazil 1 was a great season, I think the 2nd season will be just as good

I remember saying 'wouldn't it be cool if you could have sex with a someone's mouth' the very next day the blow job was invented.

Prizes will be awarded for anyone who says I was the one giving head.

Been waiting a long time for this, I expect Werdum to be better now but Nog is a warrior

I think Werdum can sub Big Nog out, either way I think he's got that fight. Nog's a great guy for TUF though, super respectful, insightful coach and Werdum is outspoken and goofy so good choices for Brazilian coaches.
