– UFC has announced that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will face Cain Velasquez in the main event of UFC 108. The fight will be for the #1 contendership and the winner will face the winner of the Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin fight.
“Nogueira vs. Velasquez is a great matchup between the present and the future of the heavyweight division,” said Dana White on UFC.com. “Nogueira showed in the Couture fight that he still has plenty left to offer at the top level of the game, and Velasquez was devastating in his win over Ben Rothwell, so with both guys in top form, we’re definitely going to see a number one contender emerge from this fight to take on the winner of the Brock Lesnar vs Shane Carwin title fight.”
