    Nelson signs with UFC again fights DC at UFC 166

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Sun Jul 14, 2013 11:24 pm

    DC will smother him. I dont think Nelson has a good bottom game as far as BJJ goes and I dont think he will find it easy getting off his back in his shape. Id back Nelson in the standup, they can both throw the big swingers but Nelson has more KO power and a proven chin. Nelsons best hope is Cormier has dropped a good bit of weight, maby a lighter DC will have more of a hard time pushing 265lbs Nelson around? Probabally not id say! Laughing 

    Roy straight into the cage then on to the floor where DC will mercylessly bounce his head off the canvis. Think DC can stop him even if it is unanswered strikes, he will be able to conrol Roy from the top and I dont see any other outcome.

    Hoping for a Nelson win all the same. Im not a Cormier fan and I think he needs to move to 205 or take more legit Hw fights, Nelson is a step backwards in the devision.

    I don't understand why the UFC would make this fight.

    It makes no sense.

    I thought Cormier was a top 5 ranked undefeated heavyweight who is working towards dropping down to 205lbs. But instead he is fighting a 265lb fatty who just got battered by Stepe Miocic and has no right being in the cage with him?

    What happened to to the rumoured Hunt v Nelson fight? That I actually want to see.

    I think Hunt has a really nasty Staph infection - I agree though Nelson vs Cormier doesnt make much sense. Not many options tho with JDS fighting Cain again and Overeem fighting Travis Browne. Miocic or Barnett who DC has just beat anyway.

    If JDs beats Cain will DC still move down to Light Heavy - I am not convinced that DC can make the cut at 34 and not be a shadow of his former self anyway

    Yep Hunt will be out a while longer but im with you guys on this fight making no sense. Cormier is 3rd ranked at heavy in my books, Beat Mir, Barnett and Bigfoot. He is above Werdum at 4th I say.

    So if he is dropping weight why not a catchweight against a big Lhw willing to step up for a Kimboweight fight at 215 or something. 220 to give him a bit of wiggle room. Jimmo or T.Silva are top 20 and that sort of walkaround weight or bigger.

    Werdum is the only fight to make a Hw but they need him as a contender and it could derail one of the only threats to the Hw title and then Cormier moves to 205 if he wins anyway.
