Derrick Lewis has made it quite clear recently that he wants to fight Roy Nelson, and that he thinks it’s a bout fans will love, and clear the UFC agrees.

The promotion has announced that Lewis and Nelson will throw down at UFC Fight Night 90, which will take place on July 7th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Lewis (15-4) will be looking to build on the KO win he scored over Gabriel Gonzaga earlier this month. Prior to that the vicious finisher took out Viktor Pesta and Damien Grabowski in consecutive bouts.

Nelson (21-12) worked his way to a decision victory over Jared Rosholt in February, which snapped his three fight losing streak. The defeats came against fellow heavyweight contenders in Alistair Overeem, Josh Barnett and Mark Hunt.

So there you have it. What are the chances this fight goes 15 minutes? 20, 15%?
