Alexander Gustafsson to fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira March 8 in London

Alexander Gustafsson will be returning to the octagon after his incredible performance against Jon Jones at UFC 165 by facing off against “Lil Nog” Antonio Rogerio Nogueira on March 8 in London, England.

There was some initial belief that Gustafsson would be fighting in his home country of Sweden, but the fight will take place in England instead.

With a win, Gustafsson will likely earn another crack at the light heavyweight title.

In addition to Gustafsson vs. Nogueira, the UFC announced that Ross Pearson and Melvin Guillard, who fought to a no contest today, will be having their rematch on the card.
