Gustafsson vs. Lil’ Nog & Guillard vs. Pearson Rematch At March 8th London Card

UFC President Dana White released at UFC Fight Night 30 post fight press conference that “The Mauler” will be facing off against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira on March 8th in London.

During Nogueira’s last fight he defeated UFC veteran Rashad Evans. In the days leading up to the fight, a majority of the viewers thought Evans’ octagon wrestling would cancel out Nogueira’s BJJ. That statement was never really tested as the majority of the bout remained on the feet. Nogueira outstruck Evans and was awarded the unanimous decision victory. This will be a good test for Gustafsson’s ground game and Lil Nog’s striking.

Also announced for the event was a rematch between Melvin Guillard and Ross Pearson.
