Nelson takes this Shuab is a good fighter but he brings nothing to the table that Nelson hasn't faced somebody better.

Unfortunately, I think Nelson will come into this far too cocky, and Brendan will take it.

I really hope you're right, Toxic. I'll be rooting for Big Country, but I won't be surprised if he gets dropped.

Roy didn't take his time and avoid taking any risks to get cocky and blow it all now.

This show series was entertaining, but the reality of it is, there is not one person on this TUF that will pose a threat to the most lame heavyweight,, everyone with the exception of Marcus Jones is way small for heavy weight,,

Stephan Bonnar made a good point on the aftermath show on spiketv.com that made my mind up about who is going to take this fight. Schaub gets his guard passed pretty easily (at least he did by Jones). Its gonna be about ten times harder to buck Big Country off if he gets full mount or puts him in a crucifix position. Roy is a legit black belt with a great base. He beat Frank Mir in a grappling match. I dont see Brendan being able to get out from under Roy if he gets taken down. Im going with Big Country in this one, even though I cant stand him.

This i did not know. I knew he was a black-belt but i wouldn't have thought he could hang with Mir.

Either way i see nothing from Schaub that Nelson can't handle and should win this without much problem.

If they keep it on the feet though then Schaub has a much better chance since tubby has mediocre stand-up at best.
