UFC heavyweights Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Daniel Cormier have been having a twitter battle over the last little while and it seems that both parties have set a date for their fight. UFC 166 will see these two heavy hitters match up against each other in Cormier’s UFC debut.

Given the official announcement of the impending fight, it appears that Nelson has re-signed with the UFC under a new contract.

Ellenberger Continues To Rip MacDonald

“He calls out BJ Penn, who’s a good friend of mine; your days of calling out guys are over. You’re claiming to be a top-echelon guy, top five in the world, and you’re asking for who you’re going to fight — Carlos Condit. No! That’s not how this game works. If you’re the best in the world you take any fight that UFC offers and prove that you’re the best in the world. That’s how your training partner Georges St-Pierre does it, that’s why he’s the best in the world. For people to be saying that Rory MacDonald is the next GSP is absolutely ridiculous. He’s got a very tough fight on his hands; that’s for sure. I’m more than ready, more than excited.”
