I can see this fight going like this:
let's go guys
2-3 punches from both fighters and one leg kick from werdum
Nelson catches Werdum
case 1) Werdum pulls guard cause he submitted Fedor so everything is possible for him (in his opinion) and Nelson stays at top of him for the rest of the round
Case 2) Nelson takes him down with his weight and stays on top for the rest of the round.

Now, choose case 1 or 2 for each of the 3 rounds and the sum is: Nelson 30-27 via UD.

(now you clap)
Thank you

Nelson via KO.
LoL, I'm not sure that Roy can count on that ohr, I can see both fighters winning under the right conditions.

Nelson has a lot of disadvantages to overcome and I have a lurking feeling he'll lose even though I picked him.

I wish he could drop enough weight to fight at lhw or they could finally install cruiser weight now that they moved the SF guys over. It would suck a lot of talent out of hw but it would be worth it.

Anyway, hope he can pull out the w.

I wonder how hard it is to body triangle Roy Nelson... dont think Werdum could get a sub here, I could see Nelson knocking him out though.

I see this fight going to a very close decision.

True but Arlovski KO'ed Werdum. A beats B then B beats C, therefore A beats C doesn't work in MMA, especially the heavies - one punch can change things quickly. This fight is a coinflip to me, but I'm with you on Werdum by decision.

I'm a big, Big County fan but for some reason I have a bad feeling about this one, can't quite put my hand on why.

Hope I'm wrong mind and Roy's able to blast him out of there.

Arlovski didn't KO Werdum, he beat Werdum by decision in an uneventful fight. Werdum was never in any real trouble standing with Arlovski (not that he didn't lose, I agreed with the decision but he wasn't getting beat up). Did you mean that Arlovski KO'd Nelson?

I picked Werdum by decision wild guess.

I think Roy has enough grappling experience to avoid the subs, so he should hold top position for the majority of the fight to a decision.
