I think a lot of people are under estimating Roy Nelson.

I think Arlovski takes this one, but it won't be easy. And Nelson is very capable of stopping Arlovski if he gets careless.

Recently, it seems Arlovski is fighting a one man battle against McDonnalds.

NYBA Champ @ 170!

I remember Roy Nelson was on Inside MMA and he said he didnt think he had to get into better shape. He's gonna find out why he has to when AA hits 10 times before he can react to the first one. Depending on Nelson's chin this will end in the first or second round by highlight KO. ALL IN.

I'm not saying that Roy Nelson is a cardio machine, but have you seen him gas in a fight recently?

Right, but few HW's have hands as fast as Arlovski.

I was referring to his mention of not needing to get into better shape for Arlovski.

I agree with him. If fighting in a fat body has done him well so far, why change it? The guy has shown time and again against really well built guys that look like they are in "better shape", that he is no slouch by any stretch.

Yea but who has he fought? He's really stepping it up in competition, skill has got him this far but to step into the big arena you need to be in great shape and hes not ready.

As I posted above, I expect Arlovski to win. But it won't be easy for him.

We will know for sure come Saturday.
