Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 128 in Abu Dhabi

UFC President, Dana White has today confirmed the rumour that former UFC light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz could be next up to take on former PRIDE superstar, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in March 2011, possibly UFC 128 in Abu Dhabi.

Rogerio, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“I’ve heard some rumors of this fight, but there’s nothing signed. In my last fight they said about (Quinton) Rampage and they changed to Ryan Bader.”

Both men are coming off disappointing defeats, Ortiz at the hands of Matt Hamill via unanimous decision, while Nogueira suffered the same against Ryan Bader in September.
