Both fighters are 1-4 in their last five fights and will look to improve on their record.
Nelson last fought Derrick Lewis in July and lost by a close split-decision.
“Bigfoot” is coming off what many might consider his most devastating loss after being knocked out in just 16 seconds by Stefan Struve in May.
