UFC Fight Night 39 goes down this Friday morning, but before then, the fighters will weigh in Thursday at 8 AM ET/5 AM PT. Headlining the card is a heavyweight bout between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Roy Nelson.
Nogueira is looking to rebound from a June 2013 submission loss to Fabricio Werdum. Prior to the loss, Nogueira had flip flopped between victories and defeats. The PRIDE FC legened had defeated the likes of Dave Herman, Brendan Schaub, and Randy Couture, while losing twice to Frank Mir and once to Cain Velasquez.
Nelson is also looking to rebound from a rough patch of his own. Big Country is currently riding a two fight losing streak, dropping decisions to Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. Nelson’s last victory came in April of 2013 where he knocked out Cheick Kongo. The winner of this bout will cement their status as a top 10 heavyweight and could be knocking on the door of a title shot due to the current lack of challengers in the heavyweight division. Also on the main card are featherweights Clay Guida and Tatsuya Kawajiri, welterweights John Howard and Ryan Laflare, and lightweights Beneil Dariush and Ramsey Nijem.
