Heavyweight Bombers Nelson and Overeem Head to Dallas

 
Two of the heavyweight division's most intimidating strikers will meet in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, March 14, as Roy "Big Country" Nelson takes on Alistair Overeem at UFC 185 in American Airlines Center.

Tickets for UFC 185, which is headlined by the UFC lightweight title bout between Anthoyn Pettis and Rafael dos Anjos, will go on sale Friday, January 23.

Looking to bounce back from a September loss to Mark Hunt, Nelson has the power to get the job done in a hurry, as all seven of his UFC victories have come by knockout. The Netherlands' Overeem is coming off an impressive first-round finish of Stefan Struve in December, and with a win over Nelson, he will have the first two-fight win streak of his UFC career.
