This is going to be awesome if it goes to the ground with both guys being black belts in bjj. This is one fight where I'm actually looking forward to it going to the ground.

I would disagree with that...

If Roy can get good position on the ground he could make life rough on Mir! However I wouldn't count Mir out. Roy should be able to keep Mir from getting a sub but I worry that Mir may be more athletic. As anouther fat guy I do hope Roy pulls off a good win though!

"These guys go out and sign with these rinky-dink little promotion companies and sign these bad contracts, and let's just say Roy Nelson is involved in a bad contract right now that he had before," White said back in November. "There's a couple of different organizations out there that do it."
I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned this part of the article. As if the UFC doesn't control the fighter's lives while they're under contract. I guess you could argue that the UFC is "the big show" but they still have VERY restrictive contracts with their fighters.
