He'll do exactly what Cormier did.

Nelson's got the power to drop Silva and hes got the chin to withstand Silva's strikes. Nelson also has a solid ground game so Silva will most likely have to stand with Roy. This fight has definetly peeked my interest

This is a terrible match up for Nelson. Antonio Silva is a very technical striker. I think people forget how good Silva is only because he had a poor performance against Comier. Whoever set this match up must really hate Nelson.

I think Dana personally put 146 together by himself.

Same. It could be the steroids, or the fact that no matter who he loses to, he refuses to give them credit. He gave Cormier all these backhanded compliments after the fight that really rubbed me the wrong way.

Dana gets on Roy's case to get in better shape and go to 205 and now they give him the biggest HW in the game...Roy either does what Cormier did cuz he loves his over-hand right or size gets the better of him.
