Alexander Gustafsson vs. ‘Minotouro’ Nogueira Headlines UFC Fight Night in Sao Paulo

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 24, 2016

A light heavyweight duel pitting Alexander Gustafsson against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will top the bill when the UFC heads to Sao Paulo on Nov. 19.

UFC Fight Night 100 will be the second of two events on that Saturday, with UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast beginning the festivities in the morning. Gustafsson and Nogueira were originally slated to square off in 2014, but the Brazilian had to withdraw from the contest due to a back injury.

Gustafsson spent nearly a year on the sidelines following a split-decision loss to Daniel Cormier in a title bout at UFC 192. The Swede returned to action on Sept. 3, earning a unanimous decision over Jan Blachowicz at UFC Fight Night “Arlovski vs. Barnett.”

Nogueira, 40, last competed at UFC 198, where he garnered a technical knockout triumph against Patrick Cummins in the first round. That halted a two-fight skid for Nogueira, who had dropped back-to-back outings to Mauricio Rua and Anthony Johnson.
