Luis Alberto Nogueira (born April 10, 1985) is a Brazilian professional mixed martial artist who competes in the bantamweight division. A professional MMA competitor since 2008, Nogueira has mostly fought for Shooto Brazil before making his U.S. debut with Bellator Fighting Championships.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Background[edit]

Nogueira won his first four fights before losing his first fight by way of second round submission to future Bellator Bantamweight Champion Eduardo Dantas. Since then he has won 10 out of his last 12 fights including wins over Alexis Vila, Hiroshi Nakamura and Rodolfo Marques.

Bellator Fighting Championships[edit]

In April 2011, Nogueira signed with the #2 MMA promotion Bellator. He made his debut against Jerod Spoon winning a unanimous decision.

With the win he entered the Season 5 Bantamweight tournament but lost a unanimous decision to Ed West in the quarter-finals.

His next fight would be against Zak Laird, who he submitted in under a minute in the first round. It was then announced that Nogueira would compete in the Season 6 Bantamweight tournament.

Unlike his previous quarter final, Nogueira notched up the biggest victory of his career thus far, winning a unanimous decision over Olympic Bronze Medalist Alexis Vila. Nogueira next competed against Hiroshi Nakamura in the tournament semi-finals. He won the fight via KO in the third round.

He faced Marcos Galvao in the finals of the tournament and lost via second round TKO.

In his next bout for the organization, he faced Frank Baca at Bellator 105 on October 25, 2013. He won via arm triangle choke in the second round.[1]

Pancrase[edit]

In March 2015, Nogueira signed a multi-fight deal with Pancrase.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Nogueira had a very short childhood, being married at the age of 14 and having his first child when he was 15 years old.
