Junior dos Santos brings in stand-up coaches for TUF 13, Black House stars possible

UFC heavyweight number one contender, Junior dos Santos has recruited not one but two of Brazil’s best stand-up coaches for his Ultimate Fighter 13 team to help him go head-to-head with former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar’s crew.

Ed Soares, the manager of “Cigano”, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“He’s got quite a few different guys. His main coach is gonna be the main coach (on the show), Luiz Dorea, who is Anderson’s boxing coach, Junior’s boxing coach, Rodrigo Nogueira and Rogerio Nogueira’s boxing coach. He coaches the Brazilian national team. That’s gonna be one of the boxing coaches.”

“We’ve got Billy Scheibe, who lives down in Oceanside. He trains Junior in Muay Thai. He trains Brandon Vera. He trains Nogueira. He’s going to be one of the coaches. And there are some other guys we’re working on.”

Soares was asked about the possibility of the Nogueira brothers and Anderson Silva appearing on the show:

“Of course, you never know. That can always happen.”
