Rashad Evans Vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Being Planned For February

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira are being booked for the annual Super Bowl weekend card, according to a report by Brazil’s SporTV.

Neither fighter has signed on the dotted line yet, but sources also confirmed with that the bout is “under serious consideration.”

Evans (17-2-1) has been working as an analyst with Fuel TV and Fox since a loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones this past April. He made mention of hoping to return to action before 2012 ended, but was more confident in an early 2013 fight.

Nogueira (20-5) offered his fighting services for a match with Forrest Griffin, but that went to Phil Davis instead. “Lil Nog” has not competed since a victory over Tito Ortiz last December.

The card the two would be linked to is set for February 2 in Las Vegas.
