A welterweight matchup between Icelandic prospect Gunnar Nelson (11-0-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and longtime veteran Mike Pyle (24-8-1 MMA, 7-3 UFC) is the latest addition to May's UFC 160 event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned of the booking from sources close to the fighters.

Both competitors have verbally agreed to the matchup, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized soon.

UFC 160 takes place May 25 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. The placement of the Nelson vs. Pyle matchup has yet to be revealed.

this is a good step up for Nelson to test himself. Pyle is a gamer and can't be counted out.

I see Gunnar getting another win here but, Pyle is definitely going to be a tough task

Good matchmaking. If Gunnar can beat Pyle he'll be a couple of fights away from a title shot. I like Pyle but I'd like to see Gunnar continue his streak.

Really want to see Pyle continue his career resurgence here. It's a tough fight for both men.

I like this fight. Not going to be an easy one for either guy. Solid matchmaking. Glad to see they are giving Gunnar tougher opponents each fight, but not rushing him into top ten fights and what not.
