The wisecracking Roy Nelson is back.

The 6-foot, round-bellied winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 10" has a tall order in front of him – literally – tomorrow when he faces 6-foot-11 Stefan Struve in the Spike TV-televised co-headliner at UFC Fight Night 21 in Charlotte, N.C.

So how do you prepare for that?

I think he'll beat struve. Roy's pretty well rounded and not a bad fighter, he's got experience, and toughness. It might not be pretty but he's a solid fighter.

yeah, im actually a fan of struve, but i think roy is gonna take it. he's a better striker and a better grappler at this point, though struve is slick with his long ass legs on the ground

lol, true for sure!

I'm just not sure though how Roy's stubby little T-rex arms are gonna be able to reach Struves sky scraping face!

"Roy's pretty well rounded " - in more ways than one! Sorry, lame gag

He should take it though as Struve's take down defense looks very average at best so Roy should be able to pound out a victory - as long as he does not get on top and effectively tickle the man to submission like he did in TUF!

He might not be able to land a punch on the guy's head but I think once it goes to the ground Nelson's size is gonna be the deciding factor against Struve.

I think Nelson's world class grappling will be more effective than his size.

Roy is always dogged for his staure. I think he likes it. The guy is a serious threat to anyone in that cage! I can't wait for him to smash Stefan
