I'm hoping an in-shape Roy will KO 'DC'.

Voting Cormier as it's the 'smart' choice IMO, but really hoping an in-shape Nelson derails the hype.

It's happening... the derailing part I mean.

Personally, I'm not on the fan train of either of these guys... but something about DC just rubs me the wrong way. I guess I'm just not a fan of AKA...

Roy could win but DC should be favored. If it ends up a standing battle then Roy certainly could land a KO shot, especially if DC comes in and fades later in the fight.

Why would you want a no hoper like Nelson to kill off a guy who can challenge for titles?

Because Nelson shedding the excess weight and getting in better shape could be a glimmer of hope for him yet.
