Report: Antonio Rogerio Nogueira-Patrick Cummins At UFC 198

According to a report out of Brazil by Combate, light heavyweights Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Patrick Cummins will square off at UFC 198.

Set for May 14 in Brazil, the event is rumored to be the host-site for UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum vs. Stipe Miocic. Vitor Belfort vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza has already been announced, as that would fill the co-main event role.

Nogueira (21-7) is coming off a pair of losses to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Anthony Johnson since his 2013 decision vs. former champion Rashad Evans. The Brazilian, who will turn 40 years old in June, is 4-4 over his last eight fights.

Cummins (8-3) dropped to 4-3 with the UFC after a November second round TKO loss to Glover Teixeira in Brazil. The former NCAA wrestling standout is 1-2 over his last three following a three-fight win streak in 2014.

Other previously announced fights include Demian Maia-Matt Brown, Leonardo Santos-Evan Dunham and Nate Marquardt-Thiago Santos.
