As reported on @ufctonight, if Hunt can't fight JDS at UFC 160, UFC has approached Roy Nelson about stepping in. ...

oooooo, though it wouldn't surprise me if it looked a lot like the first fight. I will say I think Nelson is far better now than he was when he first fought JDS. All he needs his one overhand right....

Visa issues. He's having trouble getting into the US.

That's a tough spot for Roy. Huge opportunity but he's gotta be thinking about what happened last time they fought. Phone Post 3.0

I think Roy would take it this time, especially if junior is timid from the beating he took last fight Phone Post 3.0

Honestly I'd rather him not fight at all.

Another loss to JDS kills Roy's current momentum, and I see no reason to believe this fight would go differently a 2nd time, though it was long ago.

Zuffa needs to get Hunt's ass on that plane to make this a card worth buying because JDS/Hunt was the only real thing that made this card intriguing besides the Glover/TeHuna fight. Phone Post 3.0

maq102192 - Good, Nelson deserves it just as much as Hunt. Phone Post 3.0
LOL

Why is that? Because Roy's only on a three-fight win streak compared to Hunt's four? Or because Roy's already had his shit pushed in by Junior Phone Post
Did you see who Cain is fighting next? He almost killed Bigfoot once. Roy has a nice streak going, if he steps in and beats JDS he damn sure better get the ne,t shot. Phone Post

ufc 160...the night of mismatch rematches.

why the fuck would they ever make that fight? makes no sense what so ever. jds beat the shit out of him. i understand its a last minute thing but still.

same thing with the jones vs machida talk..who wants to see that shit again?

making a rematch of a fight that wasnt close the first time is an insult to fans who saw the first fight. its boring

Zero interest in the fight but that's a tough spot to find a replacement on such short notice.

You understand its a weeks notice but still what?

Thats the answer, how many guys who arent booked are gonna travel and take a JDS fight on a weeks notice?

Frankly I think the UFC is lucky to get as good a replacement as Nelson.

It may not be the fight everyone wants to see but its better than no JDS or JDS vs Ben Rothwell or some journeyman HW.

OR you just sit JDS out and eat the shitty buyrates and schedule JDS/Hunt at the next earliest possible date instead of wasting JDS for another however many months on a pointless fight. Phone Post 3.0
