With two victories in a row inside the UFC octagon, Rogério “Minotouro” Nogueira is climbing the rankings after a shot at the UFC title. In an interview to TATAME, Nogueira’s boxing coach Luis Carlos Dórea revealed that the Bahia native fighter will come back to the octagon in September.

“It’s set that he’ll be back in September, and rumors point that his opponent might be Quinton Jackson. It’d be a great fight for Rogério, he’s a former UFC champion and a victory over him will move us pretty close to the title. The UFC only has top athletes and Quinton Jackson is really dangerous. It’d be a great fight, but the UFC didn’t confirmed anything yet”, Dórea said.

The coach doesn’t confirm it, but TATAME learned with close sources that this fight in on and agreed, but not signed yet. Talking to TATAME, Dórea shared his thoughts on how this fight would be. “He’s a complete athlete, hard to be taken down… Who puts its own strategy on the fight will win, but we believe a lot on Rogerio’s movement… We’ll work hard to get this victory”, he said.
