Antonio-Rodrigo-Nogueira-300x200A heavyweight matchup between two veterans in need of a victory was just announced for the UFC’s return to Abu Dhabi. Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira are set to square off—probably in May or June.

Nogueira asked for the fight against Nelson, and got it. “Minotauro” is coming off a loss to Fabricio Werdum last June and although he’s fought some big names, he hasn’t really won a big one in several years. Since defeating Randy Couture at UFC 102 in 2009, his only wins have come against Brendan Schaub and Dave Herman.

Nelson is in a similar spot. He’s suffered back to back losses to Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. He has also defeated Herman and Schaub (both by devastating KO) and has lost to Werdum and Frank Mir, so the two have plenty of common opponents in the UFC.

So which heavyweight do you have to reinvigorate his career?
