They helped him out financially...
Patricky Freire recently spoke with MMAjunkie and revealed that when he was in the middle of his 1-4 run, he was without sponsors and the Nogueira helped him out.
Patricky Freire told the site while promoting his bout with Derek Campos at Bellator 117 tonight, "It was hard to pay the bills during a period I spent without sponsors,. I received help from ‘Minotauro' (Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira) and ‘Minotouro' (Antonio Rogerio Nogueira). They gave me a monthly sum during that time."
He continued on, saying, "They knew about my difficulty and supported me during that time. I think they recognized my effort; I always tried to help everyone get ready for their fights, even when I didn't have one of my own scheduled."
