Matt Mitrione replaces Carwin for TUF finale.
 
Just announced via Twitter.

@danawhite RT @ESPN_MMA Matt Mitrione replaces Shane Carwin in bout against Roy Nelson sources say.

What's everyone think of this match up. I think it should be a fun fight to watch, but Nelson takes it no problem.

I think it's a better fight and it will be much closer than Carwin/Nelson. I also wonder if Dana is going to fire the guy who loses as he hates both of them.

MikeHawk 11-15-2012 08:44 PM

Almost as good as Carwin vs. Nelson. I like it.

Roy will win. Simple. Dana doesnt like anyone that doesnt fall into his mold of being a total conformist tool.

Surprised Mitrione is getting this chance considering Dana went off on him in England, but either way he needs to bring a pillow because Roy is gonna beat him like a red headed step child.

Meh, I don't know how I feel about it. If it stays standing, it's a fun fight. But Roy's mentality is 'just win'. I see no reason why he won't just take Matt down and crucifix him to a meh stoppage.

This exactly

Roys wrestling will be too much and most likely a repeat of his fight with Kimbo from TUF. I cant see him wanting to stand to too long with the reach of Mitrone.

May be his mentality for TUF but his actual fights indicate other wise.

I doubt Mitrione's stand up has Roy sweating, dude just got smashed by some hellacious stand up from Werdum and went the distance, ate some good shots from Cro Cop and of course went toe to toe with Junior for fifteen minutes.

Nelson is gonna smash Mitrione, but I hope Mitrione pulls off the upset. Was a fan of Nelson, but after that Facebook 100k likes stuff and watching him on TUF 16, I have come to really dislike Nelson.

This fight does not interest me too much tbh.

I wanted to see Carwin/Nelson because it was interesting to see what would happen when 1 of the most powerful punchers goes up against someone with one of the most durable chins and neither of them being very technical in the stand up department.
