Report: Alexander Gustafsson to Fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Next
By FCF Staff
After defeating Jan Blachowicz earlier this month, it looks like Alexander Gustafsson won’t have to wait long, before he fights again.
The Swedish light-heavyweight is reportedly set to fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 100, which will take place on November 19th in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The bout is being reported by Combate and MMA Fighting.com, but the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.
Gustafsson (17-4) worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Blachowicz at UFC FN 93, which marked the first time he had fought since last October, when he was decisioned by Daniel Cormier.
Nogueira (22-7), meanwhile, is coming off a stoppage win over Patrick Cummins in May. Prior to that Nogueira was decisioned by fellow Brazilian star Mauricio “Shogun”.
