Chi Lewis-Parry stepping in to face Roy Nelson this weekend?

Roy Nelson seemed to be off the card when Cro Cop dropped out, maybe not?

Roy Nelson was all set to main event the Bellator 200 event this weekend, but Cro Cop had to pull out due to injury.  It was thought that all was lost for Nelson as it would be next to impossible to find a replacement on four days notice, but maybe not. It seems that AKA heavyweight Chi Lewis-Parry has accepted the fight and is waiting for Roy to agree. He took to Twitter to announce his acceptance saying he signed a bout agreement.

Chi Lewis-Parry is 6-0 as a professional and stands six foot seven and weighs in just under 250 pounds. Of his six professional wins, none of them needed judges. He’s stopped everyone he’s faced. This would be his Bellator debut.

We’ll see if Roy Nelson says yes to the fight now and if so, we could have a fun main event after all.
