Default Who should Roy fight next?

I'm thinking maybe Ben Rothwell then maybe the guy Kongo beat! After that the looser of Kongo vs Mir! Then I ain't sure except maybe the winner!

Rothwell's not a bad choice. It can be billed as the IFL HW Champ fight that should have been.

I like to see him vs Mir in a full MMA match. It should be a grappling clinic. Either that Roy will knock him in to next week

I was going to say Ben Rothwell was a good choice; I didn't know they already fought, I'll have to go see if I can find it.
Well, Frank Mir would be a good second choice then.

I know they fought, but not for the title belt. Rothwell was excluded from the HW Grand Prix on a technicality.

I don't see Roy going that far in the HW division. He's not that powerful, he's fat and his skills aren't the best. I think Mir would smash him in rd 1, and so would half that div. I don't think his victories on TUF 10 say that much, Kimbo, Wren and even Schaub weren't all too impressive themselves.

However, I hope I'm wrong, how could you not like a guy who says things like : "I eat at McDonalds cuz Burger King don't pay me nothing!"

He'll develop a lot from here on out I'm sure. He's not at the highest point in his career. I think you're underestimating him. Look at Forrest. His wins on TUF weren't special. They weren't technical fights. He slugged it out. He had to develop into a contender from there or he wouldn't have lasted very long against the better fighters either.

So, sure if you look at him right now and say he won't do well, I think you're writing him off a little early. I bet that guy could stand to lose enough to get down to LHW if he really wanted to.

Well it is a 'wait and see' kind of thing. But I'm making a prediction based on what I have seen both in Roy and in the potential HW he may face. I hope he does well, I just don't see him as a serious threat.
