Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson Expected for UFC 130

Roy NelsonFormer UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir and TUF 10 winner Roy Nelson are expected to meet in the co-main event of UFC 130 on May 28 in Las Vegas, BetUS reports.

The UFC 130 fight card could be headlined by a UFC 125 rematch between UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard, which was first reported earlier today.

Mir (14-5) ended a lackluster UFC 119 main event in September with a knockout of Mirko Cro Cop and was recently pulled from a rumored matchup with Brendan Schaub.

Nelson (15-5) has apparently resolved his contract issues to clear his return to UFC action as he looks to rebound from an August loss at the hands of heavyweight contender Junior dos Santos.

The pair previously met at Grapplers Quest in 2003, with Nelson earning a 15-2 points win over Mir.
