And UFC 146 just keeps getting better. The May 26, 2012 UFC pay-per-view already features a heavyweight championship tilt between champ Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem, now the UFC has tweeted that fellow heavies Roy Nelson and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva will be mixing it up in the Octagon.
Dos Santos-Overeem not enough for you? UFC 146 will also bring you Big Country vs. Bigfoot Silva - Nelson vs. Silva is on!
Nelson is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 143. UFC president Dana White has been consistent in his criticism that Nelson needs to cut down to 205lbs and Nelson recently promised to do just that if he gets 100,000 "likes" on his Facebook page.
But it appears that the UFC wants Nelson to welcome yet another Strikeforce veteran to the heavyweight division first. Silva hasn't fought since losing by KO to Daniel Cormier in the semi-finals of Strikeforce's heavyweight Grand Prix in September.
