Thats Right!

Nelson is going to outsrike Mir rather easily here and Mir can't Wrestle.

I think Mir neutralizes Roy's wrestling with his size and strength advantage.

I think the other thing is that Nelson respected JDS' striking so much that he was in a total defensive position the whole time. He had both hands up rhino'd, he had his chin tucked and his shoulders shrugged basically the entire fight. It's like how fighters are on the ground against Maia. They don't even try to get up or go for subs they just concentrate 100% on defending. That's how Maia has no problem easily controlling them the entire time on the ground but hasn't got a lot of subs as of late.

Nelson is evolving. Mir peaked a while ago.

Nelson UD.

I'm taking Mir in this one all day long. Possibly a finish but most likely a decisive UD.

He is a better stiker than Roy with a longer reach, better footwork and he is quicker, stronger and more athletic. His takedown defence should be sufficient to stop Roys shot - and he should be able to light him up on the feet.

Nelson is overrated.

Mir can handle nelson on the feet or the ground . the only thing i believe nelson as advantage in is his chin . Frank doesn't like to take heavy hit while Roy can hit them all day .
I'm still picking frank here By UD by being the more polished striker .

I kinda feel Nelson is overrated. I see Mir winning this in any way he wants.

I see the stand up as fairly even in some ways, Mir's more technical with less power and Roy has more power and a rock solid chin. Mir has never had consistent solid TDD in the past, Nelson should be able to work a takedown at some point but whats bigger IMO is that Mir should have a very hard time taking Roy down.

To me Mir's chin makes this fight swing in Roy's favor. I can see Mir with a slight edge in the first round but I think somewhere during the last two rounds Roy will catch him with the same big shots he did JDS except Mir is half the boxer JDS is and Roy is going to catch Mir with more shots than he did JDS and at some point put him out.

TBH I hope somehow it goes to the ground because I dont care who wins and I want to see some high level BJJ from both guys.

High level BJJ battles don't really exist in MMA any more.
