Desription .........  A boisterous heavyweight, Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira began studying Judo at the age of 5, followed by boxing, and at the age of 14 accepted an invitation to study Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ricardo de la Riva Goded. Since that time, Nogueria has earned black belts in Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In a series of wins in WEF (World Extreme Fighting), RINGS, and PRIDE matches, Nogueria has earned the respect of mixed martial arts fans around the world for his ability to take punishment and keep on fighting.

Since making his mixed martial arts debut with a crucifix submission victory against David Dodd in WEF 6, Nogueira has chalked up a series of victories and titles, including dominance in the RINGS King of Kings 2000 forty man tournament, where he gained five victories. In the PRIDE franchise, Nogueria has bested Mark Coleman, Dan Henderson, and Heath Herring (crowned the inaugural PRIDE heavyweight champion in the process), while in the UFC he has defeated Josh Barnett, Mirco “Cro Cro” Filipovic, Ricco Rodriguez, and Bob Sapp. The current reigning UFC heavyweight champion, Nogueria has fought with the Brazilian Top Team, the Brazilian Black House Team, and recently established the Nogueria and Silva Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Miami, Florida. Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira is the twin brother of MMA fighter Antônio Rogério Nogueira.

Nogueria is the first MMA fighter to hold both the PRIDE and UFC heavyweight titles. He recently signed on (along with Frank Mir) as a coach on the 8th season of the Ultimate Fighter series of Spike TV.
