Roy Nelson vs. Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva Booked For UFC 146

[blackbirdpie id=”177476098655920130″]

Roy Nelson may fight at light heavyweight in the future, but it won’t be in the immediate future.

As you can see from the tweet above, the UFC just announced that Nelson will meet Antonio Silva at UFC 146. And anyone who knows Bigfoot Silva knows that he is far from being a light heavyweight. In fact, Nelson may want to put some of that weight back on so he’s not too much smaller than Silva.

Either way though, it should still be a heck of a fight. If we’ve learned anything about Big Country in his recent fights, it’s that he’s tough as nails and will turn any fight into just that — a fight.
