It appears that UFC 143 has added another stellar fight. While UFC officials haven't commented on it yet, Roy Nelson sent out a tweet late last night that all but confirms his next opponent: Cheick Kongo. Here's the tweet:

@roynelsonmma

Roy Nelson MMA Heat News @roynelsonmma & @iamcheickkongo have verbally agreed 2 fight on the card expected 2 take place at the Mandalay Bay @ufc

Nov 17 via webFavoriteRetweetReply

It's a little odd, since MMA Heat themselves didn't tweet anything about it and it's not on their page. Perhaps it's in one of their videos I haven't seen yet. Either way, if Nelson is passing along the news himself, it's more than likely legit. Nelson is coming off a third-round TKO of Mirko Filipovic at UFC 136, while Kongo has won two in a row, the most recent being a decision win over Matt Mitrione in the co-main event of UFC 137.

UFC 143 is set to take place on February 4th in Las Vegas, and features a main event UFC welterweight title fight between champion Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz.

I'm going to say Roy takes this fight and fights Big Nog if Big Nog beats Mir, if Mir wins then I think Nelson gets Carwin or something

Apparently the UFC put the kabosh on this. Says kongo has a different opponent

Nelson is kind of a bad matchup for Kongo anyway.

Kongo will fight Hunt.

Would make sense to have Hunt fight in Japan because of his past there, and Kongo would draw the freakshow look that Japan loves.
