Tito Ortiz is getting at least one more fight in the UFC.

After a decision loss to Matt Hamill at last month's UFC 121, many people wondered if that was the last time we'd see Ortiz fight in the octagon, and comments made after the event by UFC President Dana White seemed to indicate it could be.

Today, though, White confirmed that Ortiz would fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in March 2011, possibly UFC 128, though White did not specifically mention a date.

Though nothing has been officially announced, UFC 128 is rumored to be taking place on March 19 in Abu Dhabi, though the event's location has yet to be finalized.

"I know there's been talk of March 19 potentially happening. While we're looking at delivering a pay-per-view around that time, nothing's been defined in terms of whether Abu Dhabi gets it or someone else," UFC U.K. president Marshall Zelaznik told MMAJunkie.com on Thursday.

Ortiz (15-8-1) is winless in his last five fights, and is searching for his first win since 2006, though his losses have come to top fighters in the division—Chuck Liddell, Forrest Grifin, Lyoto Machida, and he holds a draw with Rashad Evans.

Nogueira (19-4) recently suffered a setback at UFC 119 in September, losing to Ryan Bader by unanimous decision. That fight snapped a seven-fight win streak for "Lil Nog", who started out his UFC career with wins over Luiz Cane and Jason Brilz.
