Veteran light heavyweights Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira haven't competed inside the Octagon for a combined 23 months.
That makes for a very interesting showdown between the two divisional standouts come this Saturday at UFC 156.
For Evans, showcasing his ability to rebound from a championship loss to Jon Jones back in April is going to be key. He'll need to impress the UFC brass if he wants to make a run at Anderson Silva.
For "Lil Nog," capturing a victory over a top five contender in the division will ultimately round out his UFC career and possibly lead to a bigger role in 2013.
In any case, this co-main event to the co-main event is going to be a good one. Here's how the two stack up head to toe.
