"This one actually just fell in place. He was a southie, (like) Cro Cop, and me being a good jiu-jitsu guy, like Nogueira, so it was just a perfect fit,"

"There's nothing strange about it. I think everybody in MMA, paths always cross, especially if you've been in this sport as long as we both have."

"My hair has grown out a little longer. My beard is a little longer. So definitely, we're going to see a different Roy Nelson," he said.

Full Beard quote:

"My hair has grown out a little longer. My beard is a little longer. So definitely, we're going to see a different Roy Nelson. I just want to basically wow people with my beard, so definitely going for that. Everybody always talks about my weight, but that's throughout my whole entire life. It's nothing new. I'm sure everybody is going to talk about my weight next week, and then after my fight, and then my weight after that. It's just because people are mean. To me, I look in the mirror every day, my wife thinks I'm beautiful, so I'm going to say probably not (look different). I hope I just perform better. Looks are in the eye of the beholder."

Roy's looking to add more weapons to his arsenal. Unfortunately, with the good comes the bad.

- He's now the president of the Miguel Torres fan club and must have hand permanently sewed to Torres' junk.
- "Gots" will become part of his everyday vocabulary.
- He now walks around with an actual horseshoe shoved up his butt.

It's a nice fuzzy target for CC's left shin. Maybe this is the time we will see the old CC and a LHK...

A man can dream can't he?

As much as I like Roy Nelson, I would faint from joy if this happened.

if this is a boring fight again like their last few, i think i will probably be done caring about either one of their future fights and careers. im not hating, im just saying that CC has got to retire some time, and roy nelson cant make a career out of being able to take a beating (he does have the best chin in the division IMO).

Nelson is a good enough fighter to be thought of a more than the decision guy imo. I think CC will offer little offense anyway.

If Cro-Cop is going to be able to get anybody with his kick at this point, it's going to be Nelson.

Fleek I am not trying to start a fight here but I have to say you come awfully close to fighter bashing everytime Frank Mir's name is mentioned. Honestly I don't know how this isn't straight up fighter bashing.

And you are one to talk? Mention Chael Sonnen around you and all you hear is garbage that is way worse than what Emfleek said.

With all this talk of fighter bashing, the wise words of roy nelson come to mind: "people are mean" come on guys can't we all play nice.

Just reread "my wife thinks im beautiful"

Is it ok to hate on Mir?
cause anytime Overeem and Fedor get made fun of, it's bashing.

Mir is not on Miguel's nuts, he as a commentator had a responsibility to comment on how good the lighter-weight fighters are, and how exciting the action is.

Mir likes BJJ, and Torres always got subs and was on a huge win streak, p4p

was and still is a reason to respect Torres, even if he did lose to BB, Javier and mighty mouse.

Nelson should win by TKO and training with Mir is probably not even necessary in this one. That being said I have nothing but respect for Cro Cop,he had a great career, but the end is getting closer

Don't count CC out just yet. He has fought more good fighters in the UFC than most other HW's, who have yet to face off, have..

Jr. Dos Santos
KONGO
MIR
Pat Barry
Schaubb
Gonzaga

This to me is an evenly matched fight. CC has great take down defense and better tech. striking than Roy. Roy has a Great chin and lot's of heart, Roys best win is against Schaubb, who CC was beating, and Schaub is much better now than when Roy beat him, and has experience on the big stage. I don't know who to pick, I lean toward CC though.

I know and I wont be talking trash about any fighter. I think Chaels silver tongue got me worked into a frenzy. When I reread what emfleek said it is kinda funny, I just took it the wrong way. Roy Nelson is going to beat Cro Cop in a decision more then likely. I think he will be able to take Cro Cop down and wear him out.

I like Cro-Cop a lot but I don't trust his chin enough to pick him to win. He is completely game until that one punch hits him then its lights out. Nelson has ko power and throws overhand rights like crazy. Mirko has good takedown defense and is a good scrambler but i feel that eventually Nelson is gonna catch him with a punch. I look for the fight to end near the end of the 3rd round

Fair enough, some times I get worked up too and say some pretty silly things too

I like both guys, and as much as I would like to see CC bounce back because he is such a good guy, I think you are probably right. Barring a huge Pride era kick from Cro crop, I think Roy's chin can handle anything Cro Crop has to offer and that Roy will probably use his size to wear to wear him out. I however expect Big Country to throw that big overhand right alot because Cro Cop has been dropped alot lately. I just hope its a good fight.

As I'm saying this I'm getting glossy eyed...but I think Cro Cop gets knocked out for the 3rd time in a row. I'm not even sure a LHK would hurt Roy's chin.

I guess it's hard to tell when someone is joking if they are a mod. Or maybe people just want a chance to bitch about the guys that have warned them when they've acted the fool. Either way, I'll be selling special glasses on here for $49.99 for any of you that took this as fighter bashing so you can tell the difference between fighter bashing and joking too.
