Rumor: Machida and Shogun to coach TUF Brazil 2


For what it is worth, an anonymous member of Orkut, Brazil's version of Facebook, has posted that Lyoto Machida and Mauricio Rua are going to be the coaches for The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 2.

I received information - unconfirmed, so I still consider them rumors - that everything is already set for the second season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazilian which will be broadcast live.

Coaches will be Shogun and Lyoto Machida, with both being scheduled fight.

The two weight division for the next season are already decided - Lightweight (155lbs/70kg) and Light Heavyweight (205lbs/93kg)

Prospective participants already know everything, including the date of the tryouts, starting next month.

List of candidates includes:

Anderson "The Tiger" Lopes - 22 - Rio Grande - middleweight champion, will move up light heavyweight.

 With Dana continuing to trash Shogun because he ducked glover, I doubt he's gonna place him on tuf.

HE means Shogun got his face busted off in the last two fights. Not that he can't punch, its that he likely can't take much of a punch...

What proof is there that his punching power has decreased? Especially when everyone knows punching power is the last thing to go in a fighter. In his last fight he badly hurt Henderson who has one of the best chins in MMA

That's actually a really good point, and also the reason I think Vera at least has a small chance of pulling off the upset.

ENOUGH WITH THE REMATCHES! Dear god 205 is stacked, Shogun arguably won the first fight, and KO'd him cold in the rematch. There's no need to have them fight for a third time.

I understand the reason why I guess. But will TUF Brazil ever have a non Brazilian coach?

So Shogun will fight Vera and then Machida III? There's gotta be some better matchups at 205 right? Way to take the wind out of Shogun's sails after one of the most epic battles in UFC history. His next 2 fights shoulda been 2 of these 5 guys Rampage II - Phil Davis - Gustafsson - Bader - Rashad. T. Silva was fine for a comeback fight after the layoff but Vera and Machida III is about the worst they could have come up with.
