Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Likely for UFC 128 in March

Tito OrtizAfter going winless in five-straight fights dating back to 2006, Tito Ortiz will look to keep his UFC career alive when the former light heavyweight champ faces Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in March, UFC President Dana White announced Friday in Germany ahead of UFC 122.

The 205-pound matchup is likely slated for UFC 128, which is expected to go down in Abu Dhabi on March 19.

Ortiz (15-8-1) dropped a unanimous decision to Matt Hamill last month at UFC 121 for his third-straight loss, spurring rumors of a possible UFC release, while Nogueira (19-4) fell to rising contender Ryan Bader in September to snap a seven-fight win streak.

The UFC 128 fight card is rumored to be headlined by light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Rashad Evans.
