The two were booked once before to fight, in March at UFC Fight Night 24, but a training injury forced Ortiz out of the fight. Nogueira would fight Phil Davis and lose a unanimous decision.
Ortiz had been rumored to be paired with former Middleweight Champion turned Light Heavyweight contender Rich Franklin but Franklin will instead be having surgery to repair a labral tear in his shoulder.
UFC 140 is scheduled to take place on December 10th.
