Minotauro Out Of Pride 20!

Minotauro Out of PRIDE 20!
By Eduardo Alonso

Despite PRIDE’s intention to have their Heavyweight champion defending his title for the first time on April 28th, the Brazilian Top Team member won’t be figthting on the next PRIDE card. Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira won his title at PRIDE 17, in November, with a win over Heath Herring. After this victory Nogueira fought a non-title match at the last PRIDE event, in February, against seasoned veteran Enson Inoue. "Minotauro" came out as the winner, and DSE wanted him to finally defend his belt at PRIDE 20. His opponent was heavily rumored to be UFC veteran Semmy Schilt, but Schilt opted for a K-1 deal and he became unavailable to face the champion in April. Other opponents were approached, with no deal being close, and in the end FCF was told today that Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira surely won’t be fighting in the next PRIDE card, but his twin brother, Rogerio "Minotoro" Nogueira, is still negotiating for a possible appearance. Minotauro is likely to defend his title at PRIDE 21.
