Two UFC heavyweight fighters are slated for a critical match, as Roy Nelson and Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipovic are set to face each other at UFC 137 to redeem their respective career.
In a ‘loser leaves town’ match, Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic announced in a Croatian sports show – Gol – that he is set to face Roy Nelson at UFC 137. Both fighters are coming from multiple setbacks, with Roy Nelson carrying back-to-back losses from Junior Dos Santos at UFC 117 and Frank Mir at UFC 130.
