Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for its upcoming UFC Fight Night 39 event (video preview), headlined by a heavyweight hoedown pitting Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira against Roy Nelson on Friday, April 11, 2014, from Du Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
The entire event streams live on Fight Pass and now has an official poster.
Looks like those international posters all share a common theme.
Nogueira (34-8) hasn't competed since UFC on FUEL TV 10 in June 2013, when he had his arm twisted by division number one contender Fabricio Werdum. The aging Brazilian could be making one last run at the title before hanging up the mitts for good.
But he first has to get through "Big Country."
Nelson (19-9) captured The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 trophy in late 2009, but has been hot-and-cold ever since, racking up a bland 6-5 record that to its credit has five finishes. One more would not only finish "Big Nog," but also snap a two-fight losing streak.
Who ya' got?
