    Default Roy Nelson wants a rematch with Cormier

    Roy Nelson wants a rematch with Cormier
    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-with-Cormier/

    FigthHubTV's Marcos Villegas caught up with Roy Nelson, and discussed his loss to Daniel Cormier at UFC 166 last month. Although Cormier outwrestled Nelson (three takedowns to 0 according to FightMetic) and outstruck him by a 74-17 margin, Nelson feels he was outpointed but did not receive an old school beatdown, and wants a rematch.

    "I didn't feel like it was a fight, just a good sparring match," says Big Country. "I was back in the gym on Monday."

    "I just got out pointed. It's nothing against Daniel. You know, Daniel - excellent game plan, played it to a tee. I just wish I had two more rounds. That's about it. Daniel won that night, and he was the better guy. I'd definitely like to do a rematch. I'd fight anybody that I ever lost to."

    Yeah of course, it makes sense. The fight was extremely competitive and I feel that the judges robbed Nelson, so why not to do a rematch?

    Now seriously, Nelson can fight Schaub again. He is just a punching bag for Top fighters but he can beat Schaub again, as long as Schaub does not shut Nelson down.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Two more rounds????

    I love Roy but he was defeated pretty handily in that fight. Absolutely perfect gameplan to nullify any offense Roy may have been able to generate.

    You know he throws a stupid looking kick in every fight.....it's kind of like back in the day when Manute Bol shot a three-pointer once a game.

    But at least Manute hit a three every once in a while...

    I would venture there weren't ten people on the board who were even remotely familiar with this commentary.
