By Eduardo Alonso

Nogueira Brothers Likely Set for PRIDE 25!

      PRIDE 25, scheduled for March 15th, is a mere 6 weeks away and the card is finally starting to take shape. While many of the matches for the card are still being negotiated, FCF just found out that two matches are very likely to happen, and indeed almost ready to be announced, which will feature the Nogueira brothers from the Brazilian Top Team! PRIDE Heavyweight champion Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira will finally face Russian fighter Emelianenko Fedor, in a hotly anticipated match-up with Minotauro’s belt on the line. His twin brother, Rogerio “Minotoro” Nogueira, who just defeated Guy Mezger in a split decision at PRIDE 24, is also likely to appear on the card facing a student of Hidehiko Yoshida! The Japanese fighter who also has a black belt in judo and trains with the former Japanese Olympic Gold Medalist and current national NHB hero and weighs around 98kg. This will be the judoka’s NHB debut, and those two matches are likely to be announced within the next few days in Japan. PRIDE 25 still holds lots of surprises and FCF will continue to keep a close eye on the developments.
