UFC 130: Mir vs. Nelson, Rampage vs. T. Silva, Alves vs. Story (UPDATED)

Frank Mir (L) and Roy Nelson (R) appear set to square off at UFC 130

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (14-5) and The Ultimate Fighter Season 10 winner Roy Nelson (15-5) at UFC 130 this May, according to BetUS.com.

A follow up report by MMAJunkie.com says that Nelson’s contractual issues that have kept him out of action likely won’t disrupt the match-up.

The bout features two of the best grapplers in the division looking to move closer to title contention. But, for the MMA nerd in us all, it’s a rematch of sorts. Years ago the two competed in a grappling match — won by Nelson — at a Grappler’s Quest event in 2003. Check out the video below.
