ufc 190

Heavyweights will collide at UFC 190, as Stefan Struve takes on former interim UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Set for August 1 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Ronda Rousey defends her female bantamweight title against Bethe Correia in the main event.

Struve (25-7) is coming off back-to-back losses to Mark Hunt and Alistair Overeem. He had won four in a row before that, while also recovering from an enlarged heart.

“Looking forward to fighting one of my hero’s in Rio,” Struve posted on Twitter. “Can’t wait to show I’m back and a much improved fighter!”

Nogueira (34-9-1) has dropped his last two, as well, falling to Roy Nelson and interim champion Fabricio Werdum. He has fought the likes of current champion Cain Velasquez and former titleholders Frank Mir, Randy Couture and Tim Sylvia during his career.

Below is the current lineup:

UFC Female Bantamweight Championship
Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Bethe Correia

Heavyweight: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Stefan Struve

Light Heavyweight: Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
