I would say Carwin has this, but his super long layoff has me worried, so I'm going to go with Nelson in this one.

vBookie Record: 16-9

Carwin. Nelson will throw one overhand right at a time, occasionally shoot for a takedown, get stuffed, then get beat up. His best bet is to get rocked in the first, let Carwin gas himself out then crucifix him.

Roy fights with his chin. Carwin could knock a horse out. Carwin wins.

Nelson got himself TKO'd by Arlovski so flooring the guy CAN be done. And Carwins bombs will breach Nelsons poor defense at some point.

Shane Carwin. Providing his long layoff doesnt affect him too much I see him finishing Nelson.

I'd have to say Carwin, but will watch with genuine interest. Opening line I've seen is Carwin -200 and Roy +150.

Carwin by 1st round knockout. Nelson's chin is good, but not good enough to take Carwin's punches.

I think Nelson has enough power to catch Carwin with that overhand right he likes to throw, and I think he has more than a decent chance considering how long Carwin has been out. But Nelson's style plays right into what Carwin made a name from doing.
