UFC 130 Breaking News: Roy Nelson & Frank Mir Shocker

By Sean Farrell

Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Frank Mir are scheduled to meet at UFC 130 Memorial Day weekend. Nelson was previously leaked that Roy Nelson was under contract with Roy Jones JR.’s Square Ring Promotions after being part of the March 2009 event “March Badness” where Nelson faced Jeff Monson. Nelson was slated to fight Shane Carwin but Carwin withdrew for a back operation. UFC President Dana White didn’t offer much insight on the situation but he did release a statement back in November 2010 saying:

“These guys go out and sign with these rinky-dink little promotion companies and sign these bad contracts, and let’s just say Roy Nelson is involved in a bad contract right now that he had before. There’s a couple of different organizations out there that do it.”

Square Ring Promotions was claiming first rights to all say so with Nelson, Square Ring Promotions was also seeking $10,000 from both Zuffa LLC and Nelson. Although all the details haven’t been released the issue as expected with most Zuffa LLC cases the issue is now resolved quietly as expected and Nelson will return to the Octagon.
