    Ufc 197 main card
    Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier
    DJ vs Cejudo
    Whittaker vs Natal
    Nelson vs Lewis

    Card looks very solid so far

    It's like a grizzly bear vs. a panda bear.

    I'd put money on the black beast.

    Pretty quick turnaround, especially for heavyweights.

    Seems to still be substantiated rumor at this point. Found this on Swedish MMA site.

    Reputation: Roy Nelson meets Derrick Lewis at UFC 197


    Derrick Lewis wants to face Roy Nelson. And Nelson wants to meet Lewis. It is now rumored that the two heavyweights get their way at UFC 197th

    Before today could MMAnytt report to Derrick Lewis (14-4) want to face Roy Nelson (21-12). And it seems that the feelings are answered. Nelson said, namely, "The Black Beast" with the following tweet:

    FIGHT FANS ufc @ # @ ufc197 Thebeast_ufc vs @ roynelsonmma MMAjunkie @ @ @ arielhelwani mmamania box & # ... received https://t.co/7Dhe07rLnp

    - Roy Nelson (roynelsonmma) February 11, 2016

    During the day, lots of MMA fans showed their appreciation on twitter for the potential match. Apparently, Nelson vs. Lewis, a fight that many want to see. An unconfirmed rumor has begun to spread that the meeting will actually take place at UFC 197th

    Won in the same gala

    Nelson came from a win, the first in four games against Jared Rosholt (14-4). "Big Country" won a decision against the same long wrestler at UFC Fight Night 82. In the same gala defeated Lewis Pole Damian Grabowski (20-3) via TKO. It was Lewis second victory in a row, and in total, he has gone 5-2 in the UFC.

    Although Nelson's stats on paper look a little worse than Lewis, so it is worth noting that the "Big Country" has been matched against tougher opposition. Almost all of his fights in the UFC were against ranked heavyweight.

    I think Roy wins this one, he looked good agaist Rossholt. By decision or haymaker.
