Big Country and Big Nog in Abu Dhabi

The UFC returns to Abu Dhabi on April 11...
Heavyweight veterans will battle it out in the main event of the UFC's second show in Abu Dhabi on April 11, as Roy "Big Country" Nelson faces Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira on a UFC Fight Night card.

Looking to snap a two fight losing skid, Nelson hopes to recapture the 2012-13 form that saw him knock out Dave Herman, Matt Mitrione, and Cheick Kongo in succession. Brazilian icon Nogueira is also hoping to bounce back from a recent loss against fellow TUF Brazil 2 coach Fabricio Werdum, and the former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight champion has the perfect stage on which to begin his return to the top.

The UFC's previous visit to Abu Dhabi came in April of 2010, with a UFC 112 card headlined by Anderson Silva's middleweight title defense against Demian Maia.
