Roy Nelson vs. Stipe Miocic Added to UFC 161 Card

The loss of Renan Barao vs. Eddie Winelend has caused a bit of a reshuffling of the UFC 161 card, as Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson is now the new main event and apparently Wineland is out of luck. Roy Nelson was on deck for UFC 160 just in case Mark Hunt was denied entry into the United States, but as the UFC believes to have that situation sorted out, they have booked Roy Nelson against Stipe Miocic on the UFC 161 card to help flesh it out a bit.

Nelson is on a three-fight win streak right now while Miocic is coming off of his first loss, a tough defeat to Stefan Struve back in September. It should be an interesting fight between a solid Heavyweight gatekeeper and an up-and-comer in the Heavyweight division.
