UFC champions Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira and Anderson “Spider” Silva of Brazil have moved to South Florida to open a mixed martial arts academy in downtown Miami.

Nogueira and Silva Mixed Martial Arts Academy is the first academy headed by two current UFC champions. The pair plan on training together, giving seminars and teaching adults and children of all ages and ability levels.

Like they do in Brazil, the academy’s pro fighters will also work with underprivileged children, ages 4-14. In Brazil, Nogueira works with 160 kids, he said.
