A light-heavyweight bout between former champion Rashad Evans (17-2-1 MMA, 12-2-1 UFC) and veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (20-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC) is in the works for the UFC's traditional Super Bowl weekend event, which is likely to be UFC 156.
Globo brought word of the matchup today.
UFC officials weren't available for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), but a source close to the event said the fight is tentatively targeted for Feb. 2.
