Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140 in Toronto on December 10th

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz will meet another veteran of the sport in Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on December 10th, 2011. UFC officials announced the fight meaning both men have likely signed official bout agreements. Ortiz was said to be fighting former 185 pound champion, Rich Franklin at UFC on FOX on November 12th, a fight that is no longer on paper.

Ortiz will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing to former champion Rashad Evans at UFC 133 last month. Prior to that “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” had choked Ryan Bader out in the very first round for a much needed win.

Nogueira is coming off a two fight losing streak against powerful wrestlers in his last two fights in the form of Ryan Bader and Phil Davis. To face Ortiz, who is another fighter strong in that area, may cause the Brazilian some problems.
