I'm hoping Schaub takes this. Just to prove that a former NFL player can become a good fighter.
How i see this fight?
If it goes on the ground, it's Nelson. Even though Schaub managed to escape Jones' mount, i don't see him doing the same if Nelson takes him to the ground. Roy is far more experienced than Jones. I'n not saying he is gonna pull another crucifix, but he has the ability to control the fight on the ground.
On the feet, i see Schaub having the edge. He feels smoother, faster and has a lot of power in that right hand. If he doesn't expose himself and doesn't leave himself open for the takedowns he has a good chance on taking the fight to the later stages. He has to take a close look at the fight between Nelson and Justin wren, he might get a clue on how he can create problems for Roy. Justin made a good job, but gassed.
Annyway. Hope it's a good fight.
Best regards

Well I used to dislike Nelson and his attitude, but Schaub is just on another level... at least Nelson has something to be a bit cocky about, Schaub hasn't proved anything yet. Nelson took some hard shots off Kimbo, I don't expect Schaub to knock him out, and I doubt Schaub's ground game is actually anywhere near Nelson's. I just wish he wasn't so big, it must make him slower and less agile than he used to be... apart from when he's on top and no-one can get out. The knowledge is still there though and I don't think Schaub is a worthy opponent. Having said that, he's the type of asshole that'll get the win in some kind of inconceivable shit way and continue being a cock and thinking he's the best, but I don't think he'd last long fighting in the top 20, let alone the top 10, of the UFC. I reckon Marcus, Schaub and Nelson will all fight in the UFC again anyway.

shaub is a good striker for a former nfl player. But roy has fought people with 10 times better striking so imo roy will win the way he always does.

I want Schaub to win badly enough to bet on him and vote for him here, even though I am pretty sure he's going to lose. I know the poll was for who you THINK will win, but I just can't vote for Roy for anything but "most incomprehensible physique for an athlete."

I am taking Roy Nelson. I like Schuab and I think that he has a lot of potentia. But, I think that Roy just has too much experience and has fought better opponents. He has fought for titles, so he won't get caught up in the moment of the TUF finale like Schuab more than likely will.

I'll be cheering for Schaub. He seems like a good guy and a good fighter, but unfortunately Roy Nelson is in a different league to what he has come up against before. I was impressed with how Schaub came back from being taken down by Big Baby to knocking him out but Nelson has the skills on the ground and more than good enough striking ability to dictate what happens in this fight.

Roy Nelson win via TKO, I reckon. The fight will go to the ground in the second round and Nelson will pass Schaub's guard and deliver a string of unanswered punches which will force the referee to step in.
