    Damn, I was really looking forward to Roy VS Carwin, again.
    Not saying he has a better chin then Roy not many do I'm just saying he has a better chin then some of the guys that Roy has KO'd. I don't think Mitrione ko's him either just think it would not be in Roy's best interest to take his stand lightly.

    Mitrione has a huge task a head of him. Roy has heavy hands, a solid chin, and a top level ground game. Roy's only downfall seems to be the lack of over all ability with regards to wrapping up those attributes in the cage.

    As much as Mitrione has grown on me, and I root for him, I think Nelson is still above him.

    How do you figure Mitrone takes a UD over Roy? Just curious.

    Mitrione has improved his striking a lot. He's been using his distance and kicks well and I feel Roy only has that big overhand in the stand up, which he will keep trying to land. If Roy grapples with Mitrione he easily takes it but I don't see Roy doing that.

    That's the exact same thing I thought when I read that. Hell I'm not so sure meathead has better standup than Herman

    Well if this is the least exciting fight then we're in for a treat
