Heavyweights Stefan Struve (pictured) and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will each be looking to collect a much-needed win at UFC 190.
On Tuesday, it was announced the 265-pounders will collide in the August 1 event.
Struve has dropped two straight scraps in devastating fashion. Prior to December’s knockout to Alistair Overeem, he was TKO’d by Mark Hunt. “Skycraper” had rattled off four consecutive bouts before his current skid.
Big Nog has also lost two consecutive bouts. The former interim champion hasn’t been seen since getting knocked out by Roy Nelson last April.
HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil hosts the festivities.
Here is the card’s current lineup:
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Stefan Struve
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Bethe Correia vs. Ronda Rousey (UFC bantamweight champion)
