03:07 PM ET 01.30 | The UFC is reportedly targeting a return to Abu Dhabi, and they will play to have a "big" bout on the card. According to a report from UFC Tonight on Fox Sports 2 on Wednesday night, the UFC is planning a heavyweight bout between mixed martial arts legend Antonio Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira and Roy Nelson. Yes, that would give us "Big Nog" vs. "Big Country." If the UFC does return to Abu Dhabi, it will be their first time hosting a show in the United Arab Emirates capital since April of 2010, when Anderson Silva and Demian Maia headlined UFC 112, which turned out to be a stinker.
