Roy Nelson has fought two callibres lately...and he lost to both; Andre Arlovski and Jeff Monson. I wouldnt be so sure that he's as good on the ground as Mir either.
Cheick Kongo on the other hand has only been submitted by Frank Mir, and has wins over the likes of Mirko Crocop and Paul Buentello, his loss to Cain Velasquez was decision, so he wasnt finished.
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.
