The UFC is making its return to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates after a four-year absence. Unlike UFC 112, this card is exclusively on UFC Fight Pass, with heavyweight legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira squaring off against knockout artist Roy Nelson. Nogueira is coming off of a submission loss to Fabricio Werdum last June, while Roy Nelson has lost his last 2 (vs. Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier). This is a scheduled five-rounder, although neither man has seen a 4th round in their UFC careers.
This post will provide immediate updates of the official results for every UFC Abu Dhabi fight, with a full recap of the main event. For those who are holding off on watching this show live (at 12:15 PM ET) then I suggest you avoid scrolling down further. Following the conclusion of the main event, Bloody Elbow will provide extensive post-event coverage for the rest of the day and into Saturday.
