Team Nogueira has released a video and anthem celebrating the presence of seven of their fighters in the upcoming UFC Rio III event, the Brazilian website Portal do Vale Tudo reported today.
The anthem concerns the brothers' overcoming of adversity as well as the athletes of team Nogueira who helped it get to where it is today.
Whether or not you enjoy will most likely depend on how you feel about that particular genre of music.

In a related piece of news yesterday, the same website published an interview with Big Nog's physiotherapist Dr Angela Cortez.
In the interview Dr. Cortez stated that after a string of injuries Minotauro's health was now 'excellent'. She added that he no longer had any problems or complaints and could now focus on 'training and physical preparation'.
This of course leads to the question: how will a putatively healthy Big Nog do against Dave 'Peewee' Herman at UFC Rio III?
One final story on Tatame today concerned Jose Aldo's return to health. Aldo was side lined to the dismay of MMA fans around the world after a bike accident damaged his foot. However in a brief interview the featherweight champion said that he was now able to train Jiu Jitsu, and that in one week would be back to normal training. Here's hoping we can get back on track with Aldo vs Edgar soon.
