UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Nelson fight card

A look at the UFC's April 11th visit to Abu Dhabi, where Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Roy Nelson meet in a five-round main event.

Your eyes are not deceiving you, there is no UFC this week. In fact, the next show isn't until April 11th, an unfathomable 2 1/2 weeks after yesterday's card. After six events in six weeks I'm not sure whether to exhale or go directly into UFC withdrawal mode.

Anyway, April kicks off with a return to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, a place they haven't been since UFC 112 back in 2010. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Roy Nelson headline the Fight Pass-streamed event, with Tatsuya Kawajiri taking on Clay Guida in the co-main event. A fight that is definitely worth keeping an eye on is John Howard, 2-0 in his UFC return, against Ryan LaFlare, who is 3-0 inside the Octagon.

Here's a look at the full card, which you can watch starting with the prelims at 11:30 AM ET/8:30 AM PT. What could be better than a UFC event on a work day in the daytime?
