Yes, heavyweights Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (32-6-1 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Brendan Schaub (8-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) will fight at UFC 134.

UFC officials today confirmed the rumored main-card bout.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported the likelihood of the bout earlier today and said officials were "leaning" toward the matchup. Sportsnet.ca first reported it.

The Aug. 27 event is set for HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro. The pay-per-view headliner pits middleweight champion Anderson Silva against Yushin Okami.

Gotta say Schaub by ko at some point in the fight. Unless Nog can catch him in a submission. I'd love to see that but It's doubtful. I'll go with Schaub by tko in the 1st or 2nd.

I'm leaning more toward late TKO or decision for Schaub.

MMA fans are so fickle. Its like every one in the community experiences memory loss after a few bad fights.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Schaub win. He's a rising star and Nog is a falling one.

Still, Nog will have a TREMENDOUS!!!!! advantage on the ground. He showed against Big Timmy that if he gets you down (even after taking a hell of a beating) you're in some deep do do (no Tim Silvia pun intended.)

I wouldn't be surprised if he got Schaub down and tapped him either.
