A light-heavyweight bout between veterans Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Tito Ortiz that was expected to take place at UFC 128 will instead headline UFC Fight Night 24.
The event is expected to take place March 26 in Seattle. The news was first reported on Tuesday by MMA Junkie.
Fight Night 24 will air on Spike TV. It will be the UFC’s first trip to Washington, and will likely take place at the KeyArena.
Ortiz teased the possibility of the fight on Monday night via his official Twitter account. “Big news,” he said. “I’m not fighting in New Jersey. But I am still fighting ‘Lil Nog’ in March.”
