MMA and kickboxing legend Mirko Cro Cop will make his Bellator debut in May, when he faces fellow longtime veteran Roy Nelson.

Bellator officials today announced that Cro Cop (36-11-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) and Nelson (23-15 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) will meet at Bellator 200, which takes place May 25 at The SSE Arena in London. The event airs via tape delay in the U.S. on Paramount.

The contest serves as a rematch of the pair’s October 2011 meeting at UFC 137, which Nelson won via third-round TKO.

Cro Cop, 43, comes to Bellator on an impressive eight-fight winning streak. While he fought just once in 2017, a New Year’s Eve TKO win over Japanese veteran Tsuyoshi Kohsaka at Rizin FF 9, Cro Cop went 4-0 in 2016, including three victories in a three-day stretch to claim Rizin’s openweight grand prix title.

Meanwhile, Nelson, 41, was recently bumped from Bellator’s current heavyweight grand prix with a decision loss to Matt Mitrione at Bellator 194. The bout with Cro Cop will mark Nelson’s third for his new promotion following a 19-fight run under the UFC umbrella.

With the addition, the Bellator 200 lineup currently includes:

   Champ Rafael Carvalho vs. Gegard Mousasi – for middleweight title
   Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson
   Michael Page vs. David Rickels
   Phil Davis vs. Linton Vassell

A lot has changed about these fighters since UFC 137.  That was one of Nelson's best performances ever, and one of Filipovic's worst.  Cro Cop is looking better than ever, and Nelson's game has declined significantly.
