Nice..I got Roy Nelson in this one. Matt Mitrione has got a lot of things going for him though - new camp, long lay off which can give him time to improve and, he is hungry to get back in the cage. But with that said, Roy Nelson is a vet - his striking is legit, his knockout power is even more legit..so even if Matt is the more technical striker, hes got to watch out for Roy's power. As far as the wrestling goes, I give Roy Nelson the edge but, Matt is an NFL caliber athlete so his chance of improvement in this area is huge -  but even with assuming his wrestling improved, Roy should be able to get him down eventually and that is where I see him winning this fight. Roy's ground game is no joke, he uses his size well, and with an opponent like Matt who isn't a huge HW, Roy should be able to keep top control of him. I see him getting a late submission or tko on the ground.

I think Nelson will do to Mitrione what Kongo did to him in the 3rd round.

Not meaning to be disrespectful, even though it will come across like that, but this is really the best they could do? Carwin to Mitrione? Come on.

Ktaco - Not meaning to be disrespectful, even though it will come across like that, but this is really the best they could do? Carwin to Mitrione? Come on.

Carwin was on a 2 fight losing streak, he was only put there because he and Nelson had BEEF. Who else was there? 

Struve-Already got ko'd in less than a minute

Shane Del Rosario-Coming off a tko loss 

Pat Barry-Off a Ko loss 

Stipe-Off a tko loss 

Hunt-Injured 

 

Only guy NOT coming off a loss that seems to be available is Kongo, who knows if he was offered it or not.

mittriones last fight against Kongo was crap.  Roy brings the fight though so it should be interesting.

Showtime deal, they're locked up until at least the last Strikeforce show. Don't know about Arlovski. Sergei Kharitonov should be in the UFC and should've been offered to step in against Nelson

Def not a bad fight on short notice.

Both came out of TUF 10, think Roy wins but this is a solid fight.
