BPes-I6CIAABpC-.jpg-largeRoA match-up between undefeated heavyweight Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson has been rumored to be in the works for UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3, which takes place on Oct. 19 in Houston, but a deal has not been finalized.

Nelson (19-8) tweeted Cormier on Thursday asking what the hold-up is.

“What are you waiting for uncle @danawhite permisssion because I am ready!!” read Nelson’s tweet.

Cormier responded with an informal bout agreement to face Nelson at UFC 166 and signed it.  For Nelson’s winning bonus, Cormier’s agreement said, “no point.”

Here’s a look at Cormier’s bout agreement to Nelson. After posting it, Cormier tweeted Nelson saying, “Still waiting.”

It didn’t take long for Nelson to sign it and tweet it back to Cormier.
