    I like Roy but yeah, he hasn't beaten anyone to merit a title shot. And I don't see him beating Cain.

    It is pretty funny that Dana White is pushing the concept of earning a title shot.

    Chael Sonnen got a title shot against Jones, and Bonnar got a shot at Anderson Silva.
    So anything can happen actually.

    But it is very unlikely, Nelson would need to beat a Top 5 fighter and that is not happening.

    BTW anyone know when Miocic is fghting next?

    Same thing i was thinking. He is a one trick pony with a granite chin eventually that chin will give out and he'll be done. I like the guy but at this stage of his career at 37 he isn't getting any better. He'll never challenge for a title but he should provide some fun fights to watch.

    That is kinda like telling someone who hates their job to simply quit even though it pays the bills.

    In the HW division, probably a win away. After Werdum gets his long awaited shot

    It'd do more to hurt DC than help Roy. He'd still be 2 fights out barring injury if you ask me.

    A lot of us can relate to Roy... pot belly and all... that's why we watch him, we want to see the regular looking guy beat up on muscle freaks... unfortunately, unless they are lower ranked, Roy can't handle'em... and I really don't think he'll be able to beat DC...
