Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Roy Nelson To Fight At Future Event In Abu Dhabi

The UFC is heading back to Abu Dhabi for the first time in four years and a heavyweight clash between veterans Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Roy Nelson is set to be a potential main event for the yet to be announced card.

The news was released via sources over twitter. At this time it is thought it could go down as early as May.

Nogueira suffered a broken arm back at UFC 140 in December 2011 at the hands of Frank Mir, forcing the Brazilian legend to have extensive surgery on his arm. It now appears this latest fight has meant further damage to his limbs, something that could very easily have meant the end of his career.
