I just hope Werdum doesn't just flop to his back the whole fight.

Werdum is without a doubt techincally better on the feet and on the ground by roy has that wrestling and one punch to put werdum to sleep. Very good fight imo id probably pick roy for his one punch and that wrestling. Werdum wont tap him.

I think a big part of Nelsons ground game is his physique and he nullifies what everybody else brings to the table I think he makes Werdum fight his game and it should be a good fight but I think Werdum takes a close decision if Country doesn't land that overhand.

I think I am one of the few who thinks Nelson is better than Werdum on the ground.



maybe in top position, but i highly doubt Nelson is better off his back than Werdum

As a Werdum fan it is great to see him back in the UFC...to be honest he shouldn't have ever been let go in the first place.

So much for Strikeforce's fighters staying in Strikeforce, huh Mr. White?



I'd say if they're announcing the fight now, this was probably a done deal before the Showtime contract was signed. I'm fairly certain Showtime would be none too happy otherwise.

depends on how werdum tries to fight nelson. i assume this fight turns out a lot like the arlovski vs werdum fight with werdum losing on the feet the entire time and not doing anything to get the fight to the ground

IMO This is Roy's fight to lose. He should be able to dictate where the fight takes place. Werdum has an amazing guard but Roy has great ground & pound. Werdum might be more technical (i'm really not sure) on the feet but I think Roy has the advantage on the feet still. I wish Werdum could fight someone else for his first fight...he has more to lose in this fight. It'd be a great win for Roy and I don't think it would mean a lot for Werdum if he wins other than it'd be good to get a win on his first fight back in the UFC.

Must be.

I'm really surprised at all the people picking Nelson. He's clearly disadvantaged on the ground. Standing this fight is close. And I think Werdum has better conditioning and physical advantages.

I'll take the odds tho. Keep picking Big Country guys!!

I think Werdum is going to wear him out in the clinch.
