    Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Roy Nelson targeted for UFC's return to Abu Dhabi

    A heavyweight bout between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (34-8-1 MMA, 5-4 UFC) and Roy Nelson (19-9 MMA, 6-5 UFC) is being targeted for the UFC’s upcoming return to Abu Dhabi.

    “UFC Tonight” first reported the news on Wednesday. Although an exact date hasn’t been determined for the event, it could happen as soon as May, according to the report.

    Nogueira, who’s been on the sidelines since a June loss to Fabricio Werdum, recently told MMAjunkie Radio he wants a fight with Nelson.

    “If it’s [Nelson], I think it will be a good fight because the guy is tough,” Nogueira said. “(He’s) the kind of guy I like to fight.”

    Date, broadcast info for UFC's return to Abu Dhabi, Roy Nelson vs. 'Big Nog' headliner

    A UFC official today told MMAjunkie the event, which is likely to be a UFC Fight Night show, will take place April 11. The entire event streams on UFC Fight Pass, the organization’s digital network.

    A venue hasn’t been finalized, and as with the UFC’s first trip to Abu Dhabi in 2010, it could take place at a temporary/newly built venue.

    I sure as hell hope its a fight night show and the UFC doesnt expect us to pay for an event 10 hours after it was live.

    Lov Nog but his chin is going to get tested and at this point probably fail.

    Agree with both comments
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    There is a big chance nog gets knocked out, but there is also a big chance that it goes past the 1st and Roy gasses.

    If Roy wins, he's the #1 contender for a superfight with Keith Kizer.

    Sounds about right.




    Interesting Lil Nog took this fight, even though he has been inactive for the most part, he is coming off a two fight win streak.
