A light heavyweight matchup between Patrick Cummins and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is headed to the UFC 198 card in Brazil this May, according to a report from Combate.
Cummins has fought seven times in the UFC in a two year span. He entered on extremely short notice to take on Daniel Cormier in February of 2014, and after that defeat railed off three straight wins. Since that stretch, he’s lost two of his last three, most recently getting stopped by Glover Teixeira in November at UFC Fight Night 77.
Nogueira got back into action last August for the first time in over a year, dropping a decision to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. He’s lost his last two fights, which have been his only two appearances in the last three years in the cage.
UFC 198 is reportedly set to be headlined by a Heavyweight Championship bout between Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic, though the shift from Fox Sports 1 to pay-per-view hasn’t been officially announced.
