It was amazing to see Miocic totally destroy Nelson's fat bully tactics and that big punch he used to ko ROsario, Struve and the like.

He blocked that overhead throw punch just by letting it slide on his left bicep and move his head sideways a little at the same time and he used this to even defend side angle hooks as well, jumped back of upercuts as well, technical and beautiful defusing of Nelsons bully punches.

It seems Nelsons is like a gatekeeper of higher arena of fighters if you can pass the fat beast you are into the A class of heavyweights, good luck with that fat chin protected by mystical Qi energy of shaolin because there is no way a human head can stand what he does.

This fight was a relative easy pick for me. Stipe has always had technical stand up. Even in the struve fight he was doing very well until those last 20 seconds where he got knocked out. Roy Nelson's kryptonite is a technical striker that has good foot work and can string together more then 2 punches. I thought roys only chance was to get him down cause hed win handily there.

Roy fought 6 weeks ago so its not like he could really be so out of shape he'd gas in the first round. He got hurt that is all.
QFT.

I like how Roy's corner said at one point, "Don't go out like this!".

dont care how "good" Roy is or how much power he has. This is MMA this is an athletic sport...if you wanna look like a Al Bundy-esque couch potato, your days wont be that long in the sport. Roy has no gas tank. When he is gassed be turns into a pitty-patty amateur boxer. I wont lie, I used to be a Big Country bandwagoneer, now I just lost interest and see thru the folly. Granted he has a good chin, but how far will that take you?

Apparently it takes you to an IFL title, a TUF win and it takes you to the UFC. not to mention a black belt in BJJ.

Who cares? I mean why cant the guy just do what he wants? He has achieved alot and what makes everyone else think that his accomplishments are any less just because he does things his way. Thats right because people have nothing better to do then judge other people to make up for their own short comings lol This same conversation has been going on for years....and still people wont just shut up and get over it. None of his fights have sucked so why do you care? So many of the fans sit at home and drink beer and are over weight. They arent bitching that the fighters are in to good a shape are they? Just STFU and watch the fight.

lest we not fool ourselves with Hollywood triumph type of stories. This is real life. There have been 3 obese players in the NBA who started off with great acclaim, then as their career matured, it became apparent that late night parties, fast food abuse and strip club binge drinking nights took a toll on their career reaching the next level. Im not telling Roy how to live his life. Im just being honest. Look at Butterbean. Butterbean has all the KO power in the world, but gets his ass kicked by welterweights everytime he is in Japan. If you wanna look like a cartoon, face the consequences.
