I'd not want to see him fight CC at all. I'd much prefer someone who I feel is going to tell us whether or not Nelson is a legitimate addition to the HW division. A task which is made difficult by how many of those fighters have upcoming fights. Here are a couple of my propositions:
Nelson could go a couple of ways. Since I think he was probably a huge hit on TV, because of how many casual combat sport fans probably related to him, the UFC will most likely try to hype him up with a couple of mid-level opponents.
Big Nog would be an interesting fight albeit a huge step up in competition for Roy.
JDS if he wins his next fight. That'd be a great test for both fighters.
Gabriel Gonzaga would be another great match that we'd get to see very high level jujitsu during, assuming Gonzaga didn't K.O. him in the stand up.
It'd difficult to think of good competition that isn't currently occupied. I think Gonzaga is a very likely opponent for Nelson, if the UFC decides to test Nelson. If not it's likely we'll see Nelson fight another mid level fighter or two before he's given a real test.
