A heavyweight bout between Roy Nelson (16-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and the returning Fabricio Werdum (14-5-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC) has been slotted for February's UFC 143 event.

Werdum will jump from Strikeforce to the UFC, where he fought from 2007 to 2008, as part of the long-rumored move.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the bout with event sources. MMAWeekly.com first reported it.

UFC 143 takes place on the eve of the NFL's Super Bowl, Feb. 4, at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The night's main card airs on pay-per-view, and Nelson vs. Werdum is expected to be part of the broadcast.

I think Nelson gives Werdum all he can take. SD are sort of rare in the HW division but I smell one here for Werdum.

Hope Nelson tests his chin real good.

I think Werdum might have the better striking.

So much for Strikeforce's fighters staying in Strikeforce, huh Mr. White?

Even though Werdum is better than El'Roy on the ground, I don't see Werdum wanting to go there like he did in the Overeem fight.

when my friend asked Werdum in NOLA if he was coming back to the UFC, he said "I have good news for you, in December. That's all I can say".

it's nice to see him back in the UFC.

Roy can and should win this one standing. I like this fight for both guys.

Kinda wanted to see Werdum vs Mir, but I'll take this.

ahh mann it always sucks having to pick between two heavyweight favorites but iam gonna have to give it to Big Country. He has a solid advantage on the feet & hes underrated on the ground

I am pretty sure now. That travis browne will face schaub or meathead next now.

I really thought werdum vs schaub would happen

Yeah, that makes a little more sense.


So SF is being renewed, yet all the fighters are leaving

Yea Nelson all day, he deffs has better striking and KO power than Werdum, dudes underrated on the ground although I would give the advantage to Werdum in BJJ, Nelson R2 KO

I think I am one of the few who thinks Nelson is better than Werdum on the ground.
