This is one weird stylistic matchup if there ever was one. Roy may be too fat for Werdum to submit. Should be a gooder.

Werdum by being the same fighter only bigger an in better shape no but seriously, ground should favour Werdum, if only a little. Can't see any of these guys submitting the other. Standing is very close, Nelsons boxing vs Werdums Muay thai. Both have good chins but Nelson has a better one. I say Werdum by decision.

I'm curious to see how much weight Nelson has lost since his last fight. I see Nelson winning this via KO in the late second round. I don't see Werdum been able to submit Nelson, been a black belt as well and i see Nelson edging it on the feet. Plus Nelson has a chin of granite.

For some reason I see Nelson winning the striking and Werdum falling to his back a lot.

Nelson via KO.

If Nelson comes in in shape and focused this fight is his for the taking. He has better striking, more power, and his defensive jiu-jitsu and chin will make him very hard for Werdum to handle.

I'd say Nelson takes a TKO in the middle of the third, or a UD win.

I think Nelson's going to grind out a decision by landing better shots and controlling more of the fight.

So Werdum didn't get KO'd/TKO'd by Overeem (not even close) but Nelson is going to do it? That seems unlikely to me. Not that Nelson is a bad striker, he isn't but I don't see what he does better than Overeem. I think Werdum wins a comfortable decision here.

I don't think flopping to his back will be an option, Roy probably won't mind jumping in his guard.
