I just don't see how Kimbo can lose this fight?

Has Nelson ever knocked anyone out? I can't see his ground game being that good.

The only thing is I think Dana is already preparing us for a loss by saying Kimbo would be in the UFC regardless of winning TUF or not. Is he doing early damage control? Not wanting to lose his fans?

Nelson beat Werdum! If memory serves he put Werdun on his back and knocked him out!

Well I'm pretty sure I seen Roy knock out a well conditioned athlete on an IFL show that way! It seems like most the hatred I read concerning Nelson is cause he don't look like an athlete! While he may not look it he does have a legit MMA background!

Roy's 4 losses (in 6 years) come from 3 decisions & a KO.

His wins are 6 (T)KOs, 4 subs & 3 decisions.

Firstly, I never mentioned how he looks. lol. Secondly, I wouldn't consider saying that both of the fights that I have seen of his really suck equates to hatred. Thirdly, well that depends on what your defintion of the word 'legit' when you say he has a 'legit MMA background'.


p.s. That well-conditioned athlete on IFL was Brad Imes. Watch the fight and get back to me. That is the fight I was talking about earlier.

Nelson is the Nate Diaz of fat guys.

He looks weak, out of shape, dispropotinate, but evidently he's pretty dang good, or just lucky enough to face the right fighters

I hope Kimbo lays him out.

OK! After more research the fight I'm thinking about was Scherner!



Roy Nelson
From CageWiki


Profile
Roy "Big Country" Nelson (born June 20, 1976) is an American professional mixed martial artist and was the first and only IFL Heavyweight Champion.

He stands 6 ft. 0 in. (183 cm) tall and fights in the heavyweight division at approximately 265 lbs..

Nelson currently competes as a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights.

Early Career
Roy Nelson began his professional Mixed Martial Arts career on April 17, 2004. The event, Rage on the River, played host not only to Nelson's debut, but also his second match as a pro. Both matches ended the same way - with Roy winning the decision.

Nelson's next four opponents all learned the hard way, that in addition to powerful punches, "Big Country" has a serious ground game. First it was a submission on Ray Seraille, then it was Michael Buchkovich's turn to give in to a Rear Naked Choke. Another RNC victory followed, this time on Jason Godsey, when the pair met at Fight Force's Butte Brawl 1. His next foe in Fight Force series, Jerome Smith, was equally unlucky, also succumbing to one of Nelson's chokes.

Bodog and the IFL
With a flawless 6-0 record larger promotions began to take notice of the affable Nelson. A man who is characterized by Sports Illustrated's Ben Fowlkes as being "Really funny and smart. One of the few fighters who appreciates sarcasm" also noting that "Roy has a sense of humor about his weight and, um, body type."

Roy's first big break came with a call from the Bodogfight promotion asking him to come to St. Petersberg, Russia for a bout with Josh Curran. Unfortunately for "Big Country" his first fight outside of his native United States resulted in the first loss of his career, coming out on the wrong end of a decision to Curran.

The next suitor to come calling after Nelson's talent was the International fight League, wherein Roy fought as a member of Ken Shamrock's Lion's Den team. Nelson's period with the IFL started successfully with a first round TKO win against Vince Lucero. Another first round TKO was to follow with a second IFL win over Mario Rinaldi.

The only stain on "Big Country's" IFL record came at the hands of top ten ranked Ben Rothwell, of the Quad-Cities Silverbacks. Roy lost a decision to the powerful Rothwell, but has still never been stopped in a match.

Nelson got back on track winning his next winning his next two IFL contests. This set Nelson up as a competitor in the IFL's first ever Heavyweight title fight. And on December, 29, 2007, at the IFL World Grand Prix Finals, Roy "Big Country" Nelson knocked out Antoine Jaoude to become the IFL World Heavyweight Champion.

Nelson went on to successfully retain the belt on two occasions. Both battles resulted in Roy winning decisively by TKO. Both defenses were against former UFC competitors, beating Fabiano Scherner, and later Brad Imes.

EliteXC
Following the demise of the IFL, Nelson became a free agent. Just under five months after his last bout, Nelson was signed on short notice to face former UFC heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski on CBS as a part of EliteXC: Heat's main card. Nelson looked good in the first round as he got Arlovski on his back and dominated positioning. However, the fight was controversially stood up by the referee on multiple occasions while Nelson was in dominant position. Arlovski used the stand up to his advantage as he poured it on in the second round and knocked Nelson down and out.

Nelson looked to bounce back from the disappointment by facing former UFC heavyweight contender, Jeff Monson in March, 2009. Nelson appeared to take out the bout fairly comfortably via decision but the judges did not see it that way; controversially awarding a unanimous decision to Monson.

The Ultimate Fighter
Midway through 2009, Nelson was announced as a surprising inclusion on the tenth season of The Ultimate Fighter, The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights. Nelson was listed as the early favorite heading into the season due to his very experienced resume compared to the other fifteen competitors.
