    Yeah this is a strange one, a fight with no real relevance and one that can only stop Roy dropping to 205. Surely they could have got someone else to fight Bigfoot and left Roy on the shelf 6 months or so to cut down.

    Bigfoot should handily beat Nelson, and Cain should finish Mir imo

    I think Bigfoot probablyu UD's Nelson, and Cain follows the Carwin bleprint of bullying Mir against the cage for a TKO/KO.

    Got a strange feeling Roy's going to KO Bigfoot I have never been overly impressed with Bigfoot he is slow plodding and I can see Roy catching him I think this is very winnable.

    I think that Roy vs BigFoot is a terrible match up, and would much rather see Roy trim the fat and drop to 205, or at least be given a relatively small HW. Unfortunately I see BigFoot lying on top of Roy for three rounds (or 5)

    With regards to Mir vs Cain...Chuffed to bits, cannot stand Mir and I still think that Cain has loads to offer at HW. Curious to see how it pans out. Think that Cain has the edge in the stand up, and has the superior wrestling, BJJ advantage obviously to Mir, but I just cannot see him getting top position. I see Cain winning the stand up, and Mir trying to tie him up on the cage. I see Cain winning by Stoppage round 1 or 2 (But, I would love to see it go further, just to see what Cain's sub defence is like)

    booking this fight means that Gonzaga VS del Rosario will probably be a prelim, which I think is stupid as it is a much more relevant heavyweight fight than this one as when del rosario wins it will give him the exposure to the American audience.

    Prelims on FX are getting almost 1.5 millions viewers and their number are going up each time. More people will see prelim fights than PPV, which is also what it was like with Spike.

    Id love to see Gonzaga back in the top 15. A fight with Bigfoot would be cracking.
