Tough lads!

Was that Antonio Rodrigo or Antonio Rogerio? I couldnt tell since he had a shirt on so I couldnt look for Big Nog's scar, and they look so similar being twins and all. I know Big Nog is slightly taller and heavier, but Silva is tall too...

They were really going at it! But, then I suppose they both have the drive to be the best they can be so they're hardly going to slack off!

Who was the mentally handicapped person making noises in the background?

Since Minotauro wore a headgear I guess training was more focused on Anderson Silva than on Mino. Anyone know when this sparring happened?

Is that recent? I didn't know they trained together.

All us American fans better start learning to pronounce foreign names... It's "Hodrigo", not "Rodrigo."

There was some web-radio guy interviewing GSP, and he kept calling him "George-ess." He should have just gone with "Rush" or "Mister St. Pierre" or something.

I know that Rogan always said that Anderson got his BJJ blackbelt from one or both of the Nogueira brothers... I'd think it would've been shortly after he left Chuteboxe, but that's just a guess.

He's stated in his interviews before that he's been preparing for fights with BTT and the Nog bros in particular but since Big Nog is at ATT now I would guess that the sparring was done in preparation for either Franklin or Lutter.

The camp Silva helped form when he left Chutebox is called Blackhouse. Vitor and Machida are training there now too. Anyway. they are kind of allied with BTT, like Horn and Franklin are kind of allied with Militech from everything I've read.

When Anderson left Chute Box is because BTT was offering him money to train at BTT. He was a memeber of BTT for about 2 years. This is when he received his black belt.. He then left to form his own team, as someone else stated, named Black House.

In a recent interview with Nog about UFC 73 he stated Anderson got him in contact with Zuffa, and BTT had nothing to do with the fight. He also stated he isn't training with BTT for this fight, instead he is training at his home(where he has a medium sized facility) and with Black House. At this time he is unsure if he will ever return to BTT due to some comments team founder Bustamantle is making towards Nog and his brother.

Did anyone notcie how big Anderson looks? Nog is 6'3'' 230-240lbs, and Anderson looked to be about only 10lbs smaller. That looks as though it will be a hard cut to 185lbs.

Definately not nog, get a near close up on his face near the end of that footage, thats not his face in that head gard. As for silva, looks more like a skinny gary goodridge. Nice try whoever it was that put this on here, i've seen nog and silva spare in brazil, thats not them in this video !!!!!

You are way off guy. Tatame even has it labeled with their names. You can clearly see it is Anderson from the close ups of his face. As for Nog it is hard because he has head gear on, but I trust this website, and the fact that both fighters have said they are training hard together for their upcoming fights at UFC 73.

What would be gained from lying about the participants in a sparring session?

Looked right to me...

I was gonna ask the same thing. My guess is lil nog and that this was recorded shortly after the Soku/Lil Nog fight.

Seriously, great post.
