A heavyweight rematch between two of the sport’s legends will headline Bellator 231. The show goes down from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday, October 25. The show is going down 24 hours before Bellator 232 from the same venue, which is headlined by a Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix finale.

Headlining Bellator 231, however, will be Frank Mir and Roy Nelson running things back. MMA Fighting confirmed the matchup, which was initially reported by MMA Junkie. Their first meeting took place back in 2011 under the UFC banner. There, Nelson took home a unanimous decision victory. Now, “Big Country” finds himself on a three-fight losing streak under the Viacom-owned promotion’s banner.

He hasn’t picked up a victory since his promotional debut in September of 2017 when he bested Javy Ayala via unanimous decision. He’ll take on Mir, who is on a four-fight losing streak, including his two bouts with Bellator since signing with the promotion last year.

The following night at Bellator 232, the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix finale and rematch between Rory MacDonald and Douglas Lima will take place.

What do you think about Mir and Nelson’s rematch headlining Bellator 231? Who are you picking to win the rematch?

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir is considering legal action against the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Mir has been on record about his displeasure with the way the anti-doping agency has handled his own situation, along with that of Jon Jones. Mir, like Jones, tested positive for turinabol, however, unlike “Bones,” Mir’s situation was not deemed a “pulsing” effect:

“In the spring of 2016, when USADA representatives sat in my Las Vegas kitchen and told me that the turinabol metabolite that they said I tested positive for could only have been ingested within a window of the past several months, I vehemently proclaimed my innocence,” Mir said.

“Having never failed any drug test throughout my career, I asked if we could go back further in the past to test any supplements that I could’ve taken, but they claimed that was both impossible and unnecessary.”

Legal Action & UFC Conduct

Speaking to RT.com, Mir revealed that he is considering taking legal action against USADA for the way they handled things. The entire situation eventually led to Mir requesting, and being granted, his release from the UFC. He’s now under contract with Bellator MMA:

“[I want to take action against] USADA for giving the instructions on what’s going on, and not really utilizing the test. I mean they are the scientists, they should know better what they are using, and know that a lot of the other tests that they are having, have been groomed… and have been thoroughly studied, understood, evaluated.

“But the UFC too. I have issues with them. They do things that are… you know… they use information but… for example they do dirty things like… You have an athlete under the contract, not allowed to work anywhere else. He’s suspended?

“Yeah. But he could get the ball rolling or maybe start looking for work in other areas, but no! You keep him under contract and then at the end of his suspension he gets a release letter and now he knows, yeah? So I’m not really happy about their conduct either.”
