Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Slated To Face Dave Herman In Brazil At UFC 153

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is slated to return to action at UFC 153 this October against Dave Herman, according to Brazilian reporter Guilherme Cruz of Tatame.

Nogueira (33-10-1) has been out of action since suffering a broken arm against Frank Mir in 2011. He was set to face Cheick Kongo earlier this year, but issues with his arm caused an exit from the fight.

“I put myself at the disposal of UFC Rio 3 (UFC 153),” Nogueira posted on Twitter. “I’m waiting for confirmation of the president’s (Dana White) event. Come on guys!”

Herman (21-4) will be facing his third tough heavyweight opponent in Nogueira. He has lost two straight fights to Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve.
