roy nelson deserves so much respect. the way the game is changing, if you would have asked most mma fans 5 years ago no way would most think roy would still be relevant. guy is a beast, does it his way, and does it well im a fan. cant wait to see him fight again

I know, it's just crazy to see. He used to be completely unkoable (thats a word eh?!), and much faster, it's hard to watch how far him, Wanderlei, Cro Cop etc all fell off. I was never a big Liddel fan, but he fell off hard too, so did Rampage, I mean everybody does eventually, it's just crazy when it's guys who used to be so far above the others.

Sad to see the second greatest heavyweight of all time fall off so hard. Happens to everybody, especially when your style is the "Rocky".

Roy is awesome. Saying he isn't any good is just stupid.Bad matchup for Nog. Knew he was going to get KO'd.

Roy's an excellent fighter. He only loses to elite heavyweights.

Because Roy's not very good. Some of us hoped (but didn't think) that a guy who's getting KO'd a lot these days would, when fighting a guy who can basically only win with a big overhand right, keep his left hand up.
