Roy Nelson is staying in the UFC’s heavyweight division for now.

UFC officials confirmed Wednesday that Nelson (16-7 MMA, 3-3 UFC) will meet Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (16-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) in heavyweight action at UFC 146 on May 26 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Well, Roy looks like he's gonna hit his 100k on Facebook. I'm not sure that matters anymore with this news though...LHW seems like a sure thing with this matchup, regardless of the Facebook deal. The only way I can see him win this is finding the holes in Silva's standup that Cormier exposed.

Uh oh. I mean it's always fun as hell watching fat guys with a good chin throw down with someone but I'm starting to feel bad seeing him get pummeled every time he fights.

I would have rather seen Antonio fight someone like a Shane Carwin in his debut. Someone who is the same size as him with KO power.

Roy has the power to end Silva's night. I think it's gonna be a great fight.

Silva does have a big target with that big head.

Nelson never really gets any easy fights, like other TUF winners.

I'd really like to see Big Country get a fight with a newcomer or something.

He's a good fighter but he's gotten shitty match-ups.

If he wants to fight for a long time though and make a serious splash in the sport, he absolutely needs to drop to 205.

Even if he loses, I bet Dana will give him a fight at 205 for taking this fight, they been searching awhile for an opponent for Bigfoot.
