It’s official: Roy Nelson and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will do battle when the UFC returns to Abu Dhabi on April 11th¬†as previously speculated. Unfortunately, this card will only air on Fight Pass.

You can stop reading this article right now. No one would blame you.

The April card will serve as the first in a two-year, five-event minimum deal the UFC has reached with Flash Entertainment that also includes broadcasting rights to that Ultimate Fighter show I hear is so popular these days. Flash Entertainment is of course, the organization that purchased a 10% stake of Zuffa LLC back in 2010 prior to UFC 112. So if you’re a wealthy oil tycoon who just so happens to be a fight fan looking to purchase a home away from the three homes you already have, this is probably huge news for you.

Executive Vice President and Managing Director of UFC, Gary Cook, spoke on the recently reached agreement and you stop reading when you saw “Fight Pass” didn’t you?

This agreement is a major step in our strategic expansion across EMEA and, in particular, will see our audience grow dramatically across the region. There is a huge market for the UFC in the Middle East. The fans want live events and can now look forward to local tailored content in the region.

Well, that was a series of words alright. Here’s another: infinitesimal, trapdoor, gator, concubine,¬†didgeridoo, Grape Ape, merengue.

So…Big Nog vs. Big Country anyone? Anyone?
