Within the past 12 hours, Roy Nelson went from knowing who he would be fighting next to not having a clue.
The durable UFC heavyweight, who likely retired Mirko Filipovic in his last bout at UFC 137, tweeted last night that he would be facing Cheick Kongo at UFC 143 Superbowl weekend. According to the UFC, however, it has other plans for the French striker who handed Matt Mitrione his first loss on the same card that “Big Country” fought “Cro Cop” on .
The news may have also come as a surprise to Kongo, whose friend, actor Gilles Marini told MMA H.E.A.T.’s Karyn Bryant at UFC on Fox that the fight was set.
So the question is, who should Roy fight next?
Our vote goes to Cain Velasquez.
