Roy Nelson vs. Gabriel Gonzaga set for UFC 146

UFC 146 is now finally back intact.

Following the fallout from top contender Alistair Overeem losing his title shot against Junior dos Santos, the May 26 card had been treated to a card shuffle. UFC president Dana White verified shortly ago that Roy Nelson will stay on the card against returning UFC heavyweight, Gabriel Gonazaga.

After a year away from the promotion, Gonzaga made his successful return with a first round submission of formerly undefeated, Edinaldo Oliveira at UFC 142. Oliveira was originally highly touted as a prospect, due to his training partner, heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.

‘Big Country’ will be looking to rebound from a recent loss to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 143 in February. The TUF season 10 winner has yet to string together a set of victories since his win over Stefan Struve via TKO in March of 2010.
