Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson at UFC 130 in Las Vegas, Nevada (Video Included)

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir and TUF 10 heavyweight winner, Roy Nelson will clash in a heavyweight bout for the yet to be announced UFC 130 card in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 28th, 2011.

Mir is coming off a less than exciting third round knockout of former PRIDE veteran, Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 119 in September. Prior to that he’d suffered a first round TKO defeat at the hands of heavyweight monster, Shane Carwin.

Nelson was last seen over the summer months going head-to-head with Junior dos Santos losing via unanimous decision. Following the bout he ran into problems to do with an old contract, a situation that appears to be resolved at this time.
