The UFC has added another feature bout to the rapidly-filling UFC 140 card in Toronto on December 10th. In a light heavyweight bout that was originally supposed to happen last March but was canceled due to injury, Tito Ortiz will meet Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, as announced on UFC.com tonight:
Verbal agreements are for a match between two of the most accomplished light heavyweights in the sport as Rogerio "Lil Nog" Nogueira will face the "Huntington Beach Bad Boy" Tito Ortiz December 10th at UFC 140 in Toronto.
Nogueira and Ortiz were originally set to meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night in March, but an injury sidelined Ortiz, and Phil Davis fought in his place. (Trivia time: Five months later, Ortiz repaid the favor by stepping in for an injured Davis at UFC 133, an from which Nogueira was also forced to withdraw due to injury.)
Nogueira's twin brother Rodrigo will also be competing on the Toronto card in a heavyweight rematch against Frank Mir, marking the first time that the two have fought on the same card while in the UFC.
