Nelson vs. Nogueira: A Complete Guide to UFC Fight Night 39

UFC Fight Night 39 goes down this Friday from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. It is also the second fight card to air entirely on the UFC's new Fight Pass service. 

Headlining the card is a battle of two veteran heavyweights with interesting backstories. In one corner, you have Roy Nelson, the lovable slugger with the bird's nest on his face, and in the other corner, you have Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, the aging lion of the sport who is looking for one last shot at relevance.

But there's plenty of intrigue up and down the card as well. Here are information capsules, predictions and viewing coordinates for each fight, from the bottom of the slate to the top.
