    Aside from the fact that Cormier has alot of boom power in his fist.

    I thought it was very clear that Cormier had Matt's number all day everyday in the grappling department.

    I just don't get why your sour about it. The only opportunity Meat was turning down was having his ass handed to him by a lesser known opponent on a smaller stage.

    The match-up is definitely not as interesting as the original fight, but as far as replacements go it's not bad. Even though I think the biggest advantage Nelson has is in the ground game, I can see him keeping it standing.

    Mitrione has heavy hands but I'm sure Nelson will be feeling very confident in his chin, and will want to win spectacularly.

    I've grown fond of Meathead. This is a step up for him as Roy's ground game is not too shabby at all. I'll pull for Mitrione though this is a tough fight for him.

    Its a TUF finale, its not going to be a huge name fight. Plus the rest of the card is pretty good for a free TV card. Im afraid if Roy loses then Dana White will personally go to the cage, grab the mic and tell Roy "YOUUURRRRR FIREDDDDDDDDD."

    I guess im in the minority but I like this fight. I also think mitrione can pull it off with his improved striking and how well he uses his reach along with his kicks. As long as he keeps his distance and composure he can pull off a decision.

    Kinda risky fight for both of them, because the loser will be very near of getting cut from the roster.

    the only way the out come means anything is if Meathead wins. He better of been training hard since his last fight if he wants a chance at Roy.

    Damn it! Quit bringing that up. (I should have been at that fight)
