Anthony Johnson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira: A Full Head-to-Toe Breakdown

UFC on Fox 12 comes to you on Saturday, and a significant light heavyweight bout will help round out the card in the co-main event slot.

No. 5-ranked contender Anthony "Rumble" Johnson takes on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Nogueira has been out of action for over a year, but he is still on a two-fight win streak. Johnson is on a seven-fight win streak of his own and picked up a victory in his return to the Octagon over Phil Davis in April. The winner of this fight will put himself in a position to be a serious title contender.

Saturday will see one of them take the next step up the ladder.

Let's get to the breakdown of the light heavyweight tilt.
