Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Added to UFC 140

You’re telling me that Ortiz found a hat that fits him? Nice try, photoshop.

The UFC has announced that a light-heavyweight fight between Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira has been added to UFC 140. This marks the second time that the two have agreed to fight each other. Originally, the two were supposed to meet in the main event of March’s UFC Fight Night. However, Tito Ortiz withdrew from the fight due to a concussion, and was replaced by Phil Davis.

Both fighters are in serious need of a victory if they want to stay relevant in the UFC. While Ortiz managed to pull off an upset victory over Ryan Bader at UFC 132, he went on to get thoroughly dominated by Rashad Evans (save for a guillotine attempt in the second round) at UFC 133. Tito Ortiz is now 1-5-1 in his last seven fights. Likewise, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is riding a two fight losing streak of his own. After losing to Ryan Bader at UFC 119, Nogueira was outclassed by Phil Davis during March’s UFC Fight Night. If we’re not counting his controversial victory over Jason Brilz at UFC 114, Nogueira hasn’t won since punching out Luiz Cane at UFC 106 in November 2009.

FUCK! We have to sit through both Nogueiras!?? One's enough.

Mir is definitely not irrelevant. Mir vs. Schaub just makes so much more sense. I'm not very excited about the card to say the least.

Easy there with the two irrelevent HW's.
I would not say that Mir is irrelevent today in the HW division.
Nog may not be relevent in the division, but he will never be irrelevent as long as he lives.
This card looks very good, very entertaining and promising.
Tito vs. Lil Nog is an interesting fight that's co-main event worthy.
I don't like the main event as I think it's a mismatch that should not have been booked, so I see the frustration there.

More like KOTN, for sure one of the two.

This card looks like a very big money maker.
Early thoughts, both Nog brothers lose, all canadian sweep.

Rory Mac and Ebersole ---> FOTN... But Hominick and the Korean should be a thriller too... One of those two will get it...

Rory MacDonald vs. Brian Ebersole --> TKO of the night!

Is this a free fight? Two irrelevant HW as the main event? Why not Cro Cop and Fedor? Or Tim Silvia and Cabbage? Maybe Arlovski and Buenotelo? Crappy main event, crappy co-main event. Very Spike, er uh, FX worthy....
