I am really hoping Roy gets the win here. But I think there is a good chance Kongo holds him against the cage all night.

Roy all day. If Kongo clinches Roy finds that uppercut. Kongo gets hit in all of his fights. Nelson seems to always fight that right hands. Roy is landing on Kongo's jaw here.

Roy 1st round KO.

Division 1 Kongo by vertical lay and pray, though I want Roy to win.

Kongo is such a weird fighter. He's been in the UFC FOREVER, I think he showed up maybe a month after Silva. Everybody still thinks he's some sort of kickboxer when he's been outstruck by BJJ guys, his muay thai credentials are mysteriously lacking, and he is the most boring wrestler at heavyweight.

I agree with what Toxic originally stated about this fight: potential to be one of the worst ever. Joe Silva screwed the pooch here. Either Kongo holds Nelson against the cage throwing crotchknees for 15 minutes or Nelson holds Kongo in crucifix for 15 minutes.

I would say Nelson wins, Kongo is the worlds greatest gatekeeper, he has peaked. Nelson could fight in a level higher (basically he can go SSJ enough to beat Kongo). Nelson via TKO.

This is gonna be incredibly painful to watch and will decide who is the true undisputed UFC HW Gatekeeper. This fight will take place against the cage with plenty of stalling and a whole lot of gassing. The true losers will be everyone watching.

I'm going with a more positive approach here...

It has a potential to be a snoozer (cage/clinch and crotch shots).... But I think we may be in for a serious slug fest = someone getting ktfo!

I really am thinking Nelson via nasty uppercut KO late Rd. 2.

How crazy would it be though if Kongo pulled of a KO comeback a la Pat Barry?!
