New, 2 comments

MMAJunkie reports on the confirmation of several bouts for May's UFC 130 in Las Vegas:

Headlined by a third fight between UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (13-1-1 MMA, 8-1-1 UFC) and Gray Maynard (10-0-1 MMA, 8-0-1 UFC), the May 28 card also features light heavyweights Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (31-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) vs. Thiago Silva (15-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC), heavyweights Frank Mir (14-5 MMA, 12-5 UFC) vs. Roy Nelson (15-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC), middleweights Brian Stann (10-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) vs. Wanderlei Silva (33-10-1 MMA 3-5 UFC), and welterweights Thiago Alves (18-7 MMA, 10-4 UFC) vs. Rick Story (12-3 MMA, 5-1 UFC).

Aside from Stann vs. Silva, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported all of the matchups, which recently were signed and made official.

UFC 130 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The five above fights likely will comprise the pay-per-view main card.

This card is looking real good. Much like this weekend's UFC 126, this is another stacked main card.
