Dana White says that Kongo turned down the fight with Roy Nelson. Not surprised tbh since Kongos kryptonite are haymakers.

Meh stoppage?

Roy's Crucifix is the most fearsome technique in all of MMA. Imagine lying on your back with both of your arms trapped, Your face smothered by his hairy, sweaty beer belly, and on top of it all, he's tapping the top of your head lightly with his fist, mocking you. As if he's saying "I'm going to finish you now with the lightest strikes thrown by anyone above 170 lbs, and you'll still be glad when it's over."

I'd rather take one of JDS' uppercuts. at least you're left with some dignity.

Matt Mitrione = 82" reach

Roy Nelson = 73" reach

Just saying.

Mitrione will outstrike Roy, and if Roy takes the fight to the ground? He will be either Pwnded or Submited.
If Mitrione submitted Nelson, I'd eat my unborn children.

Haha, I've only watched two episodes!

I suppose I should be fair to Roy. He'll more than likely stand and bang. Guy's put on more entertaining fights than not, so fair play to him.
