A heavyweight scrap between Roy Nelson (pictured) and Derrick Lewis has been added to UFC Fight Night 90.

The July 7 event takes place inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nelson is looking to build off February’s unanimous decision victory over Jared Rosholt. It was a much needed win for “Big County,” as the veteran had dropped three straight entering the bout.

Lewis, on the other hand, is one of the division’s hotter fighters entering the showdown having rattled off three consecutive wins. “The Black Beast” has disposed of all of those victims via some form of knockout.

UFC Fight Pass streams the entire event live. Lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos defends his throne against Eddie Alvarez in the show’s featured attraction.
