PRO MMA (promma.info) along with other members of the media, took part in a UFC 102 conference call on Tues., Aug. 18, with Randy “The Natural” Couture (16-9) and Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira (31-5-1). The two fighters will headline UFC 102 which is set to take place on Aug. 29 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore.

One of the most interesting bits of information gleaned from the call concerned Minotauro’s twin brother Antonio Rogerio “Minotoro” Nogueira (17-3).  Minotauro said for a fact that his brother Minotoro will be coming to the UFC. He said they are still working out the details but the Pride FC and Affliction veteran will definitely be added to the UFC roster.

This is big news for the already stacked UFC light heavyweight division. Rogerio is ranked as the number eight light heavyweight in the world on the PRO MMA (promma.info) rankings and has wins over such notable fighters as Dan Henderson, Guy Mezger  and Alistair Overeem (twice).
