His cardio was not tested on the show in any of his fights. And regardless of what you or anyone else says about his physique not making a difference, I think a Roy Nelson with a lot less flab on his frame would be a far superior fighter to the Roy Nelson with a tractor tyre around his waist.

He's only been finished twice in 22 fights...so I dont think a fat guy like Roy Nelson will finish him. On the ground, Roy MIGHT win a decision victory...but here is what I think. Roy is going to try to do exactly what you expect in the first...he'll fail with the submission attempt and shortly there after majorly gas. By the time of the third round he'll either have been finished, or he'll loose the decision.
He beat Mir in a grappling contest already so his ground game is obviouly on par or better. I just think we will agree ot disagree onthis.

I think you believe that but I personally feel that is the way American society conditions people to think.

mma math = fail
so again, you're wrong.

BC will beat CK.

I'm not a part of American society, and science would also disagree with you I'm afraid.

i actually think roy will stand and trade with kongo and win in that fashion .. i like kongo, but mma ain't his game ... roy will drop him and get the KO victory ..

My point still stands with or without Monson. one cant be expected to see every single fight on a persons record before making a decision. Robbed or not...the fact it went to decision...I mean...people think that he's going to finish someone who hasnt been finished very often, and has fought better people on paper.
