Shane Nelson vs. Aaron Riley set to rematch at UFC 101

A source close to Shane Nelson’s (12-3) camp has confirmed he will take on Aaron Riley (27-11-1) at UFC 101 scheduled to take place in Philadelphia in the UFC’s first event ever in the state of Pennsylvania.

This will be a rematch of a fight that first took place at UFC 96, but ended in controversy when referee Rick Fike stopped the bout prematurely. Nelson, who was coming off season 8 of TUF, had dropped Riley with a big shot and as Riley was kicking up to defend himself, Fike jumped in to stop the fight.

The premature stoppage did not please the Columbus, Ohio crowd at all as it was clear Riley was fine to keep fighting. Riley is known for his iron chin and his fights are almost always in the discussion for “Fight of the Night” honors. While Nelson gladly took the victory he felt the two could meet in a rematch saying afterwards that “We can do it again”.

Here are the ‘PRO MMA STAFF PICKS’ for UFC 96:

Aaron Riley (27-10-1, 1-2 UFC) vs. Shane Nelson (11-3, 1-0 UFC)
DENNY: Riley brings in a ton of experience with numerous organizations including more than one stint with the UFC. Nelson is TUF 8 veteran, but will be over matched in this fight. Riley by decision.
EDDIE: Riley. Definitely too experienced and will put Nelson away. 1rd TKO.
MATT: Aaron Riley out pointing Nelson on the feet for a Unanimous Decision Victory.
JACK: Due to Aaron Riley’s experience and having been in there with so many top fighters, I have to go with him as the winner. Nelson has only fought outside Hawaii one time in his whole career, he has never really fought anyone with a name, and this will be a huge stage and experience for him that could also affect his nerves.
