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.
The UFC had held a Las Vegas pay-per-view event on the eve of the NFL's Super Bowl every year since 2004. All but one have taken place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, a 12,000-seat venue on the Las Vegas Strip.
Officials traditionally stack the Super Bowl weekend cards, and Evans vs. Nogueira certainly fits the bill.
Evans hasn't fought since a failed bid to take Jon Jones' title in April. Prior to the long-awaited grudge match, the 33-year-old was on a four-fight win streak that followed his 2009 title
