The upcoming card will go down on November 19th at the SSE Arena in Belfast.
Kim (21-3-1) has scored back-to-back wins over Dominic Waters and Josh Burkman, after he was taken out by Tyron Woodley in 2014.
Nelson (15-2-1), meanwhile, submitted Albert Tumenov in his last outing, which followed a clear cut, decision loss to Demian Maia.
Iceland’s Nelson is currently sitting in the #12 ranking at 170, and South Korea’s Kim is #10.
It will be interesting to see how that fight plays out. Both men are ridiculously good grapplers who also can hurt you on the feet.
