    Step down for Nelson, but he is going to win by KO again.
    It is funny how easily he beats fighters out of the TOP 10 but how easily he gets beaten by fighters inside the Top 10.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    To be fair, JDS is a superior boxer, and threw every kinda punch at Roy and Roy just ate it flush and kept on banging with him. Did JDS win the fight? Yes, but giving how JDS was gassed after not being able to put away Roy in 3 rounds doesn't mean it was easy.

    Roy fought Mir with a flu and although Mir beat him, Frank couldnt put away a guy who was severely sick that he was gassed in the first round.

    Werdum fight was a surprise as NOBODY expected Fabricio to come out with improved striking and just attack Roy the way he did. Roy took a massive beating in that first round and still went the distance and gave Werdum a fight.

    So they give Roy Nelson who is on a 3 fight win streak and is arguably deserving of a top 5 fighter - Stipe Miocic who is coming off a loss to Stuve...


    Whatcha gonna do Brother, when the New World Order destroys you?

    Roy Nelson is extremely hard to finish, that is for sure, but in your 3 examples, Nelson was a punching bag the whole time. He was absolutely dominated, not finished, but dominated.

    So they give Roy Nelson who is on a 3 fight win streak and is arguably deserving of a top 5 fighter - Stipe Miocic who is coming off a loss to Stuve...what the fuck is this shit?
    It is called UFC match making, made by "the best match maker in the planet" Joe Silva.

    But come on, we have seen plenty of examples that are far worse than this one.

    .
    You're right, he was dominated in all those fights. But I think in a rematch with Mir and Werdum, he would perform a lot better if not win. I don't think he would beat JDS ever but he would improve his performance from the first fight.

    Just cause he was dominated in the first fight don't mean a repeat performance in a rematch. Just look at both- Cain/JDS fights

    Anderson Silva could have used your support in his first fight with Sonnen.

    You mean the whole "broken/bruised" rib thing with Silva?

    Whatever the condition of his ribs were, he persevered like a champ, and finished a guy that was pounding on him all throughout the fight.

    6. Alistair Overeem
    5. Bigfoot Silva
    4. Fabricio Werdum
    3. Daniel Cormier
    2. JDS
    1. Cain Velasquez
    He fought Mir
    Hunt and Jds are locked
    Something tells me Browne turned it down idk why
    AO was hurt
    Bigfoot obviously locked in with Cain
    He fought werdum
    DC actually was asking for this fight on twitter not long ago if I remember correctly

    I think most likely it was overeem and browne imo
