Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Frank Mir Rematch Set for UFC 140

Frank MirFresh off his “Knockout of the Night” of Brendan Schaub at UFC 134, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will rematch fellow former heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC 140 in the likely co-main event of the December 10 event in Toronto.

Mir knocked out Nogueira in the second-round of their first meeting in 2008 to win the interim heavyweight title.

Nogueira’s (33-6-1) first-round KO of Schaub came a year-and-a-half on the sidelines after undergoing hip surgery following his loss to Cain Velasquez in early 2010, while Mir (15-5) is coming of back-to-back wins over Mirko Cro Cop last September and Roy Nelson in May.

The UFC 140 fight card also includes Rory MacDonald vs. Brian Ebersole, Rich Attonito vs. Claude Patrick, and John Cholish vs. Mitch Clarke.
