A UFC 137 bout on October 29 is expected between Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson and Mirko Cro Cop. Cro Cop first announced himself on a Croatian news station the bout and it was recently further verified from Nelson’s wife and manager Jessica Nelson via USAToday.
The bout makes sense as both men are coming off losses against high profile competitors. Nelson suffered recent back to back unanimous decision losses to Frank Mir and Junior Dos Santos. Cro Cop also recently suffered a defeat at the hands of Mir and Brendan Schaub but via KO.
UFC 137 will take place at the Mandalay Bay Event Center and will headline UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre vs former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz.
