Daniel Cormier Vs Roy Nelson Set To Fight At UFC 166


Heavyweights Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson are all set to scrap at UFC 166 on October 19th in Houston, Texas.

The fight isn’t official yet, but Dana White is believed to be interested in putting together once Nelson puts pen to paper on a new fight deal with the promotion.

Former Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix winner Cormier got off to a winning start in his UFC debut earlier this year, albeit in somewhat lackluster fashion against Frank Mir.

Nelson didn’t look at his best either as he dropped a decision to Stipe Miocic, breaking a three-fight winning streak.

UFC 166 is set to be headlined by another heavyweight fight as Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos meet in the Octagon for a third time.

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
