The Superbowl weekend light-heavyweight bout between Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and former UFC light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans is news to Nogueira.
According to the light-heavyweight contenders management team, the UFC has not contacted them about the potential match up.
We originally reported on the rumor last week, but have still not heard anything official as of yet.
Nogueira (20-6) last fought and defeated current UFC Hall-of-Famer Ortiz at UFC 140 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada almost a year ago.
Recently, the former Pride FC veteran was scheduled to face highly regarded light-heavyweight prospect Alexander Gustafsson at UFC on Fuel TV 2, but was forced out the contest due to injury.
We'll have more on this story as it continues to develop.
