Is it just me or does it seem like Joe Rogan brings up the Nogueira fairly often. During Heath Herrings Debut Joe mentioned Herrings loss to Nog and how Nog was one of the Top HW's in the world.
I also distincly remeber both lil and big Nog being mentioned as the "Nogueira brothers" who trained someone in BJJ. (i believe it was Hermes Franca pls Correct me if i am wrong).
Is it possible that Dana White is in the process of sigining these two guys and he wants Rogan to build them up os when they arrive in the UFC everyone will know that Nog beat Cro Cop and Herring?
I have heard many times by forum posters who claim that this will not happen b/c of the way Dana White Treated Murilo Bustamante, the UFC MW champ at the time. I dont believe Murilo was mistreated however but rather that he and the UFC had a diffrenece of opininons on what he should be paid so they went their Seperate ways. I dont believe any hard feelings remain. Espically since that was a few years back, and i doubt that the entire BTT would refuse to go to the UFC b/c of it.

Any thoughts or more Sightings(hearings) of Joe Rogan mentioning the Nogueira twins?

The UFC could be talking amongst themselves about signing the Nog bros. But I think it might have to do with Rogan and his BJJ. He trains in it and they just might be people he looks up to

It would be a great signing... Maybe he will try to time it out... Bring in Big Nog after CC gains the belt, and market the rematch, I can already see the promo:

The man who has taken the UFC heavyweight division by storm, Mirko CroCop, faces the only man every to submit him...

In all it would be great if it was true, big Nog especially, I think lil Nog still has a lot to prove in Pride so I don't see him coming for a while at least (but he's more than welcome!).

Good thinking in general... Rogan has mentioned them quite often, and wouldn't they be a huge asset to the UFC fighter stable??


Side note: I think that Rogan mentioned that Anderson Silva got his BJJ blackbelt from one or both of the Nog's, after he left Chutebox.

But he trains BJJ under Eddie Bravo. Im not sure if he has any connection to BTT.

Anderson Sivla BJJ black belt under Nog's. that sounds more right that Franca. I was pretty sure i was wrong on that one.

I hope it's true, especially LIl Nog. I think he has the best chance to beat Chuck of any LHVY.

I personally think that Ricardo Arona has the best chance outta all top 10 LHWS. They guy is a beast at grappling and if anyone can take chuck down its him.

Can you imagine Arona with a cage to push someone against and elbows. Could be devastating, it would seem to fit his style better. However, I don't know how exciting he would be to the casual fan unless he throws elbows like Tito .

Bravo trains BJJ under Jean Jaque Machado, so I don't think theres any BTT connection, as the Machados are kind of like the Gracies.

I don't think Arona would fly with the casual fan, in the same way Marquette and Lister are in the dark matches. Remember Lister vs. Arona? That was one of the most boring fights ever.
