16m6k2w_medium_mediumFormer UFC heavyweight champs Randy Couture and Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera is set to headline UFC 102 in August. Mark Munoz will also be competing on the same card and now it looks like he will be training with one of those two MMA legends:

Mark Munoz: Setup a training session with Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera tomorrow. It's on like donkey kong!! Thankful for the opportunity!!

Anton Tabuena: Wow.. That's big. Who else have you trained with in this camp?

Mark Munoz: Gonna train with Little Noguiera, Lyoto (Machida), Anderson (Silva), (Rafael) Feijao, the whole Blackhouse team. Can't wait. Exciting!!!!

Mark Munoz will be making his middleweight debut against Nick Catone on August. At 5-1, the 2001 NCAA wrestling champ is a very promising prospect that is still at the developing stages of his career. He will look to speed things up as he trains with team Black House, a star studded team that houses a few of the very best fighters in the world.

Team Black House has an impressive roster that includes former PRIDE and UFC heavyweight champion, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida, UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, Antonio Rogerio Noguiera (#7 Ranked LHW), Rafael Feijao, and former WEC champ Paulo Filho.

UPDATE: According to Mark's latest tweet, Brandon Vera also trained with Noguiera at Alliance in San Diego:

Trained in San Diego w/ Noguiera & (Brandon) Vera. Did Muay Thai for the 1st time with Coach Billy. It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship!

Brandon Vera will also be on the UFC 102 card and will be facing Matt Hamill. It will be interesting to see how this Filipino-Brazilian connection develops in the long run.
