Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Roy Nelson full fight video preview online for UFC Fight Night 39

The main event of today's (Fri., April 11, 2014) UFC Fight Night 39: "Nogueira vs. Nelson" event on UFC Fight Pass in Abu Dhabi will feature Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira returning to the cage for the first time in 10 months to battle struggling head basher Roy Nelson, who has lost two fights in a row. One more and he might be out!

Nogueira:

"I want to be one of the best heavyweights in UFC. And now I've got an easy fight. When my opponent is good, it motivates me to keep going. 2008 when I was holding my UFC belt I think was the best day of my life. We've gotta test ourselves. I've gotta be tough, I've gotta be strong. When two lions get inside the Octagon, and I know someone is going to step forward."

Nelson:

"Fighting Big Nog is... that's something as a heavyweight you're always wanting to fight. He's won the PRIDE championship, he's won the UFC chammpionship, and he's beat some of the best guys in the world. I think I can beat anybody in the world. Big Nog comes to fight. He's going to try to finish the fight. Someone's going to get knocked out or someone's going to get choked out."
