The twins Rodrigo “Minotauro” and Rogério “Minotouro” Nogueira will be starring in a new show on cable television, the theme of which will be the lifestyle and travels of the two Jiu-Jitsu black belts in the UFC. The announcement was made last Monday at a press conference held by Fox International Channels at Unique Hotel in São Paulo.
The program will involve travel, culture and martial arts, and it’s for precisely that reason that it will not show on Fox Sports channel in Brazil, but on Nat Geo, a channel that broadcast educational documentaries and programs.
“To study the martial arts, it’s wise to look at the culture of their country of origin. We travel to several countries and get to know a bit more about their culture through the martial arts. We study a bit of Buddhism in Thailand through Thai boxing, for example,” explained Minotauro. “We’re also going to show what our training camps are like, when we travel to get prepared for our fights. We’re far from our family, living in another country, speaking another language. The program will explore MMA’s cultural side,” he added.
In all, the Nogueira brothers should take eight trips during the second half of the year in shooting the show. The premiere date is so far undetermined.
