Roy Nelson vs. Big Nog Set to Headline Abu Dhabi

According to a report from it looks like the UFC is headed back to Abu Dhabi on April 11th for what looks to be UFC Fight Night 39 and that the main event will be none other than Roy Nelson vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. As we reported earlier in the week, Big Nog is thinking that his career might not go on for much longer than the four fights that he has left on his contract with this being one of them.
