And the rumor mill is going both ways. Sources indicate that Lesnar is asking for Roy Nelson next, which would be Brock's first 2011 fight, but UFC may have other ideas...name one Francisco Santos Mir III...3. The series between the former UFC Heavyweight Champions is 1-1 and would be an easy sell, but nothing is close to set yet.

I think Roy wants to fight sooner than that. Wouldn't a Mir/Nelson winner gets Brock make sense?

im not that excited about mir/lesnar 3. i would rather see lesnar fight big country. if he lost to big country that would be huge. lesnars shown some serious weakness standing and i have no doubt that roy could KO lesnar. roys got good wrestling even if its not as good as lesnars but he could keep it on the feet long enough to get the TKO.

Let the guy fight someone new and learn something....he isn't going to get better by preparing for the same guy over and over.

also having a record at 8 matches 3 against the same guy doesn't show that the heavyweight talent pool is as big as Dana is trying to make out that it is

I really hope it's him vs Big Country.
A third match between him and Mir would be too soon in think.
I feel it would be best to do what you guys mentioned above.
GIVE HIM VARIETY!!!!!

i'd rather see all of them fight someone else.
Mir vs. Schaub, Roy vs. Rothwell (simply because this rematch should have happened earlier,) Then have the winners of those 2 fights face each other.


Carwin & Brock fighting again makes sense to me but I'd rather not see that for while.

but the UFC will do what they will. I still think it's ridiculous that they had roy fight JDS so early and then they planned to put him against Carwin. Lots of fighters he could have faced before fighting for the #1 contender spot. Roy needs to give his body time to recover.

I thoguht u said at first youd rather see them all fight...as in a royal rumble...thatd be awesome... id give that win to the superior boxer...need to be quick and accurate to disable your opponents whilst not taking too much time...submissions would be hard considering the rumble will have many people

now that im on the topic...who would win a UFC royal rumble?
