Agreed! JDS is good but his takedown defense is lacking. Nelson by tko in the 2nd!

Roy Nelson ftw! I'm pretty sure he'll be able to get Dos Santos down, and unless there's an unwarranted stand-up, he could easily pound out Junior.

I hear they're making a jackass 3. Sounds like a good idea for Knoxville or Steve- 0
to be inside Roys stomach that night.

WOW, I guess Big Country pissed off somebody high up in the ranks because they are feeding him to the wolves, lol. I would of guess Valaqyez vs. Dos Santos was in the making but WOW.

I didn't expect for anyone to be backing Roy. I like the guy but seriously I don't think he has much of a chance against JDS. No-one's head is that immune to a KO. Still this is MMA and anything can happen.

One of two ways....
Roy Nelson using the BELLY to pin down JDS, kimbo slice style, and GnP a stoppage.
Or
JDS connects with 1 punch and TKO's Nelson in the first.
Gonna be a fun fight to watch, as much as i despise Nelson, he got skills.
Im hoping JDS makes him eat leather.
IMHO Dana White hooked this up in order to get Nelson smacked around a bit.

As long as JDS doesn't let big Roy on top of him....he should be alright
