It depends on if he can keep his distance. Roy has a very short reach, Kongo has those long limbs, he should use that and not get in the clinch with Roy who will have the advantage. But Kongo lacks IQ.

Nelson by KO. I don't see this fight ending in any other way.

I think Kongo fails at taking Nelson down and gets KOed.

I see Roy taking this fight to the mat and using his superior ground game to finish Kongo likely by ground and pound. It also wouldn't surprise me to see Nelson land his big over hand right and lay Kongo out standing up. Either way I see Big Country winning this fight.

For a BJJ blackbelt it's strange that Roy Nelson hasn't won by submission since 2006, but he will catch Kongo with a big punch early and lights out.

Styles make fights.

Nelson is better IMO at pretty much every aspect of MMA bar maybe wrestling than Kongo which is still debatable between the two.

But i can still see Kongo using his physical size advantages like his reach and height to frustrate Nelson and come out with a boring decision.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back
