A longstanding relationship with UFC heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos makes Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira uncomfortable with a title shot.

Nogueira, who will coach "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2" opposite Fabricio Werdum, said there's "no chance" he'll take a title shot unless Dos Santos is no longer champ.

"If there's any chance he doesn't have the title any more, for sure, I would love to fight for the belt," Nogueira said Thursday.

Pfftt.....*rolls eyes in disgust* - - - Big Nog fighting for the title is like Rampage showing up to fight....both will NEVER happen.

Yeah, neither will I and we both have about the same probability of getting a shot.

Someone could get hurt and a Brazil card could have big nog in for a title shot. Yeah it might be a long shot but very possible considering Dana is no stranger to trying to make an easy quick HUGE payday which would be the outcome with big nog fighting for the title in Brazil
