Roy Nelson shows the cut left by Fabricio Werdum’s Knee
Roy Nelson can take anything and keep on coming forward — he continues to prove it against Fabricio Werdum at UFC 143. It’s kind of a crazy thing to see. I really still feel he should continue to drop the weight since he’s looking slower and slower against these heavyweights, but I guess if you can stand and bang with the big boys — why stop?

UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit Weigh-In Photos

I don’t know about you, but when you get two fighters in the cage who both look to finish the fight by submission, knockout or TKO — you’d hope to see awesome fight. That’s the feeling I get when I think of Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit for UFC 143. Both are known as finishers, and that’s why the fans love them. The key to this fight is to see which one will impose their will on the other — suffocating pressure from Diaz or the technical creativity from Condit. Only time will tell.

Main Card:

  • Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit (Interim UFC Welterweight Title)
  • Roy Nelson vs. Fabricio Werdum
  • Josh Koscheck vs. Mike Pierce
  • Renan Barao vs. Scott Jorgensen
  • Ed Herman vs. Clifford Starks

QUESTION: Who do you got — Nick Diaz or Carlos Condit?

5 Great MMA Photos at UFC 137: Penn vs. Diaz from Mark J. Rebilas

There were moments of excitement in UFC 137. From the prelims with Donald Cerrone putting a kickboxing clinic against Dennis Siver to the battle between Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson — there were glimmers of what I was looking for. But the biggest glimmer of all was with BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz where Diaz shined like a bright star.

5 Results for UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill

UFC 130 was a night where certain fighters impressed and others just did their thing. Brian Stann looked to have solidified himself in the Middleweight Division. Travis Browne flies up the Heavyweight Division. Rick Story looks to call another person out. And Demetrious Johnson wins against a former Champion on short notice. A great night of fights.

1. Rampage Jackson dominates Matt Hamill everywhere

Rampage Jackson defeated Matt Hamill in relatively easy fashion. He was able to stuff all 17 takedowns Hamill was able to offer, and with every takedowns there were punches and knees that followed. He made him pay at every point in the fight. I thought it was quite impressive, but does it warrant a fight with Jon Jones. Only Dana White and Joe Silva knows that.

2. Frank Mir defeats Roy Nelson in the battle of cardio

I really thought Roy Nelson was going to come into this fight a bit slimmer, but that was definitely not the case. Although, I thought Frank Mir was going to come in fit as well — which he did look the part. During the fight, you saw both fighters just gas. Mir definitely did the most damage and had the better game plan. I’d like to see Nelson lose some weight to compete better in the Heavyweight Division.

3. Travis Browne channels Superman against Stefan Struve

The battle of the giants: Stefan Struve vs. Travis Browne. I expected this to be a war, and it was looking to deliver until Browne went ahead and did that Superman punch knockout. I had a take a double take when I saw it. If you haven’t seen it, make sure you do. It’s too bad Struve continues to be on wrong side of the highlight reels.
