The former UFC and Pride HW champ plans to come back in 2014 and he's got his eyes on the man they call Big Country.

I wonder who they are going to find to replace Nog?

I dont think this is a good matchup for big nog. I would predict a first round KO victory for Nelson.

I would be ok with this as a main event Fight night from Brazil, good name vaule matchup and the fight makes sense at this point to me.

I remeber BIg Nog wanted to fight Mitrione a little while back , which was just weak sauce to me. Glad he's being more reasonable with this call outs now. Big Country would smash this aged Nog however IMO.

I think Nogs jab singlehandedly stifles Roys offense just like the Kharitinov fight.

Big Nog probably trashes Nelson like every other decent fighter Roy has faced has done. Lately Big Nog hasn't won every fight, but on the feet he's been smashing guys. Nelson couldn't hang and would yet again only have a few minutes in the first round to win the fight with a big punch.
