FOX Sports is reporting the UFC’s confirmed the heavyweights will fight on April 15th, at a Fight Night card that will take place in Kansas City.

Nelson (22-13) will be fighting for the first time since September, when he knocked out Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. The heavy handed fighter received a six month suspension after the bout, however,¬†for lightly kicking¬†referee “Big” John McCarthy. Nelson was upset with what he believed was a late stoppage by the famous official.

The April 15th card will feature a fight between flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson and Wilson Reis in the headliner.
