Nelson Dominates, Haters Are Sour

Recommended Posts

Dear Haters,

 

You're all Dana White's pawns. Nelson can fight his **** off despite that he's fat. Everybody is making excuses about how they don't like him because he's boring or because he's too heavy. Then you all jump on Marcus' nuts and talk about how great he is. Marcus tried to finish his fights the exact same way Nelson did with the crucifix, didn't hear anybody complaining about that. Nelson is a beast and everyone hates him because he's fat and confident.

 

Nelson dropped two of the best fighters on the show, and I'm DEFINITELY not talking about Kimbo. At least McSweeney was making a serious attempt to escape the crucifix, instead of just lying there like a corpse like Kimbo.

 

Even Dana White is reneging now on his earlier claims. He doesn't want to look like a **** if Roy wins the whole thing. Typical Dana White, most of the other haters will probably do the same.

Roy did somewhat show he's not a wack **** fighter on top of a fat one. He showed good cardio believe it or not and is patient picking his spots. He cracked the hell out of mcsweeny but mcsweeny looked done at that point. He was obviously tired from trying his hardest and roy put his **** on the ground.

 

Then it got boring as hell but big contreh did get the win.

 

I dont see him getting past Schaub tho, Schaub tryied hard as hell to push off Darkness and still KTFO!

I might have to agree with you about Schaub. I thought he was good before but he really showed how good he is against Marcus. I don't know of anyone else that would be able to buck a 265 lb beast out of the mount like that. Roy has an iron chin but Schaub hits like a sludge hammer. Whoever wins I'll be happy with it.

Everyone hates Nelson because he's a ****. If he could have just excepted those wins with a humble attitude instead of portraying like his performance was "God giving" everything would have been cool.

 

The win over Kimbo was weak, and the win over McSweeney was due to McSweeney's own arrogance. They were nowhere as big as he was making them.

Lol, the win over Kimbo looked weak because Kimbo is clueless on the ground and made almost no attempt to escape. Of course it's going to look weak if the other guy doesn't fight back.

 

Dominating McSweeney on the ground was impressive. McSweeney is a tough fighter. There's plenty of ****y fighters in the UFC, it's part of being a fighter. Even Dana White said that real fighters believe that they're invincible.

Most people don't like Nelson cause of his ****y attitude. Not cause he is fat or the way he wins, a win is a win. People lay and pray all the time so I don't understand why people get pissed that he put them in an actual move (crucifix) and won? It happens..

Everyone loved the crucifix when Hughes stopped BJ Penn with it, and Matt Hughes is ****y too. I think you're mostly right, but it's also a combination of things. People just don't seem to want to see that a guy who despite looking out of shape can be a solid fighter in the cage.

im still not too impressed by his performance. a long time ago i called it to end up roy vs darrill because i figured they would smother the competition. i still dont like the guy only because he is very egotistical, but it looks like he just might have what it takes to be the ultimate fighter.

 

 

on a side not, i am quite pleased that James McSweeney was being extremely ****y, and started showboating right before being introduced to a big right hand from cheeseburger roy. that wiped the smile right off his face. roy did a good job of pounding him out after.

 

dana give the guy his Whopper with no onion's. he deserves it for making everybody else look like such a tool.

kinda funny he did the crucifix again...i wouldnt be surprised if he has a side bet somewhere about winning fights via the crucifix...

 

Possible, but it's also just an easy way to win the fight and he seems like he's pretty good at it.

Like I said, you're Dana White's pawn. If he told you that WWII never happened and the Earth was really shaped like a hot dog, you would believe that too. MMA is a sport, it's about winning, and Roy wins. I can't stop you from making ignorant posts like this one, but you don't understand the sport. Any real MMA fan would agree.

MMA is a sport. Its a about using Mixed Martial Arts. A.K.A MIXED.

 

Mixed does not include:

Win Via Crusafix.

Win by suffacating apponant.

Win by same old same old

 

Yes, did he win in the past. Correct. But there comes a time where you need to show ability. He's only showing his one. Therfore that's not entertaining. Yes, he is winning. But yes, by only one way. What is up with that crap?

 

And, I do agree. McSweeny got what he deserved. He said, "hit me", and he got hit. Now that was a skill preformance by Roy.

If I met a fat pig like that on the street, I'd just assume I had to duck four punches and he'd be gasping for air, but how the f does that country boy roy nelson keep movin his fat belly around at such a pace? Dana may have to really eat crow before this is over, though I do have my money on Schaub. Not sure I made the right choice.

Even Dana White said that real fighters believe that they're invincible.[/quote'] INFAMOUS's point was that McSweeney made the age-old error of dropping his hands and sticking out his chin like an arrogant twit, and Nelson accepted the invitation. This was the first fighter on the show that was actually worth Roy bragging about, but McSweeney kinda f***ed up Roy's bragging rights by handing his chin over (arrogant ****).

 

So, it was quite amusing to watch two arrogant twits fight -- I was gonna be happy no matter who won. I've seen Roy fight before TUF, and I just don't think his talent matches his mouth. That's what his so-called haters are saying: talent != mouth (I still find it laughable that the guy considers himself a "master"). Even if he manages to get by Schaub, and his IFL title notwithstanding, I don't see him being a force in the UFC heavyweight division. As others in this thread have pointed out, there isn't enough dimension to his game.

It doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win.

 

Unless you're in the UFC, where excitement is everything.

 

Don't expect Nelson to get a big fight in the HW division, all the fighters who fight to win, and not to entertain (like Okami) don't go very far.

Well, yeah.

 

Imagine there was a fighter who developed some kind of Vulcan nerve pinch where all he had to do was touch his opponents hand and the other guy just dropped unconscious. Would you pay to see that? I sure wouldn't. Excitement does matter. Part of the drama of a fight comes from not knowing what the fighters are gonna do. That's why I'm much more interested in fighters who display a broad skill set and adapt to different situations. I just don't see that with Roy (didn't see it with him in IFL either).

 

Gotta hand it to the guy, though. Look at all the play he's getting in here. I guess being unjustifiably ****y has its perks.

Frankly Roy Nelson was expected to win this season. I think Schaub has a great chance of beating him. But Nelson is by far the most experienced fighter in the group. Big Country has the best Crucifix in all of MMA. Nobody locks in a crucifix better than Roy. His physique is tailor made to dominate people in the crucifix. It's kind of funny. He actually uses his gut to anchor the trapped arm. If you let him get side control, you're screwed. He's a crucifix specialist.

 

It isn't pretty, but as far as this season of fighters go, it's very effective.

 

I doubt he could keep Brock Lesnar, Cain Velasquez, or Shane Carwin in crucifix. But everyone else loses to Big Roy via Crucifix.

 

Give Roy some credit, he doesn't look like a good fighter, but he is a good fighter. Heck he even won the stand-up war vs. McSweeney. McSweeney got cracked by Nelson's overhand right. Nelson is no joke.

 

I'm still picking Schaub to win the season though. That guy has all the tools to excel at this sport.

One Darth choke and two KO's to advance to the finals, is > than two crucifix stoppages, and a decesion.

You're right. It's mixed martial arts. If his opponents can't learn to defend against his attack, that's their fault, not his. People should stop blaming him for being good at something. Nobody can defend against Anderson Silva's striking but you don't hear anyone knocking him for not utilizing his ground game enough (even though it's world class).

 

His crucifix might not work against everyone, but the people it does work against, he should definitely use it.

I think he'll show more skills once he fights tougher opponents. He has an iron chin and I think we'll see that when he faces a good striker.

So nobody knows what Brock Lesnar is going to do in a fight? Randy Couture? Lyoto Machida?

Not sure what your point is. As far as Lesnar and Couture' date=' sure, we know what they're gonna do, and there isn't much diversity in their games... which is why I don't find them particularly interesting to watch (particularly Lesnar -- when you have his weight advantage, it becomes more about physics than skill, and, yes, I know he's skilled). Machida is more interesting to me. I'd [i']love[/i] to see him and Silva go at it, but I guess that's never gonna happen. But that's all beside the point.

 

Anybody who has watched a decent amount of their fights knows their strengths and knows that they will try to utilize them. It's not unpredictability that makes the fights exciting, it's the competition of highly skilled athletes, just like any other sport.

 

Yes, of course, highly skilled matters. It's great to watch talented technicians execute their technique, but if it's the same technique every time, it just gets dull. Like I said, I don't like predictability. If you like it, well, I guess we can all like different things.

 

Coincidentally, right now I'm watching a rebroadcast of the Lytle vs. Burns match. Lytle's a great example of what I mean. He shows very little diversity in his game. He wants to go toe-to-toe... every time... regardless of who he fights. And he mostly throws haymakers. Just gets dull to me. This is why I love guys like Silva and Penn. They bring so much to the table and display it in almost every fight. Stand-up and ground, and lots of dimension in both.

 

Which brings us back to Roy. You don't have to agree with my assessment. I'm simply telling you that I don't find him interesting to watch. I actually saw some video of him from 10 years ago, and he was more impressive. But his IFL fights were mostly dull (partly due to the caliber of his opponents), and I see no signs of him improving. That's the problem when you think you're the sh*t -- you see no need to improve. The way he ignored Evan's training advice showed how highly he thinks of himself. We'll see how far he goes in the UFC. I don't think it's gonna be very far.

For me its, not the ****yness, fatness or the way he fights. Its simple that he is limited fighter.

 

1. McSweeneys level in stand up is about much as Roy can take. For a real concentrated fighter, there will not be a chance for a lucky punch. If McSweeney would have been experienced fighter with world class wrestling, the fight would have been over. There are world full of those fighters.

 

2. He will not finish a single fights in UFC with crusifix, its the so easy to defend. This only demostrates the quality of the fighter in this season.. they got owned with crusifix, LOL...

 

3. He is way too small for like of Lesnar, Carwin, Velasque. Ok, not everyone have to compete in top level, but I would rather take the likes in the ultimate fighter, that have change to become top

 

The fighter that will destroy Roy: strong athelete, with wrestling qualities. Nothing more needed, Roy?s standup has lost already twice techniquewise

Um, crucifix is used quite often in MMA. YES MMA does include the crucifix. If you go into cage looking to entertain instead of looking to win, you're in the wrong sport. Those guys go in that cage ready for war, and they got 1 thing on their mind...WIN. You don't like Roy's style thats fine, you don't have to. But no denying his talents. He took the guys down and had his way with him, if his gut give him that advantage, lucky him. He's got cardio with that gut, so it's not hindering his performance. His ****y, arrogant attitude is what turns people off on him.

 

I'm not a Roy fan, but you can't deny he's got a great shot at winning TUF. IMO, and i've said this since TUF 10 started Schaub is gonna win it all.

I CANT STAND THIS GUY!!!!! I am a full figured woman and I like my men big, but BIG COUNTRY IS NOT FIGHTING.......HE IS SMOTHERING! He just climbs on top of his opponent and squishes the life from them. Its obviously effective, but my god, fight. Its so painful to watching him beach on top his opponent like a pissed off hippo, and just perch there waiting for suffocation to set in. This is just sad. Im glad he's paving a way for fat folk but come one, do it the right way. You cant claim SIDS on a grown man.

It's ridiculous to hate on Roy...all he's done is win. You play to win the game! I pick him to win tonight as well. As for Kimbo here's my take: I like him a lot more now as a man, cool guy, humble and all that but as a MMA fighter horrible. I think if he can't win tonight in a straight up stand-up war when will he win?

That was a huge disappointment for me. First off Kimbo should have knocked roys head off in the first fight if the ref would have stood them up after roy laying on top of him for the whole first round. That fight was a joke. I was thinking schaub was going to beat roy for the ultimate fighter. Schaub would have had the fight if he would have layed back and let roy come to him a little bit more. He was doing a good job of avoiding the clinch with roy. Schaub had alot more potential then roy "BIG COUNTRY" nelson did. First off he comes out to the fight with michael jackson.... " i'm bad' LOL he should have got wooped just for that. But after the fight the first thing he says is im going to go get some burger king!!!! I mean we know your fat! Geeez he did not deserve that contract at all. He says he is ready for whoever Dana throws at him. I would love to see Randy Couture knock his head off. I give it to Roy that he can throw his weight around but he is not a good fighter.

The song was 'Fat' by Weird Al

 

Schaub's potential had nothing to do with Nelson's greater stand-up and ground-game prevailing over his.

 

His attitude has nothing to do with anything - in fact I've found that his attitude has rooted out all the hard-arses with no sense of humour.

 

Overall Roy Nelson knows what he's doing and has a great sense of humour. If you don't have the mental capacity to realise that, I pity you. Tsk tsk tsk.

Roy Nelson is not going to get anywhere in the UFC... I will never pay to watch a PPV fight with him in it. He got a lucky punch in tonight and that was it. Schaub shouldn't have rushed him so much. He had a 5 inch reach on him. He was teeing off with his left hand jabs on nelson. I can't wait til Nelson gets matched up with a real Heavyweight of the UFC.

Sure you will pay and time after time you will come to this forum before the fight stating how Roy will be so owned because he is but a fat slob.

Then afterwards some whining and it can all start once again.(or he lose and you can rejoice, same result for Mr. White)

UFC needs both ppl to dislike and ppl to like as long as they are good fighters and Roy fit into at least 2 of those categories.

I was skeptical at first, but have come to respect the belly. I still don't believe he'll ever be competitive at the top of the UFC though. He already had a lot of experience, so its unlikely he'll improve dramatically over the next years, as less experienced TUF winners have.

When I saw Roy fight Kimbo, I didn't like the results much, but it was because I was disappointed for Kimbo rather than hating on Roy. I didn't think it was legal to suffocate your opponent into submission, particularly using a gut similar to my own, but once I got past that, I had to give Roy his props. :P

 

I was rooting for Justin in their fight, because he looked like a real prospect to me and I loved his attitude, but Roy pulled it off there as well. I was very pleased to see him wipe out McSweeney, who I think is a world class ******. However, when this fight came along, I figured Schaub would likely take it, based on his performance against Marcus.

 

Roy surprised me, in a good way.

 

I was pretty impressed with the way he won that fight. I figured Brendan would control the stand-up game, and Roy would have to take him down to win, but Schaub defended on the ground and Nelson pulled out the KO standing up.

 

No hate here. Roy deserved to win the contract. Oh, and using "Fat" as his theme music won him big points on my score card. :D

I can't wait till he has to fight a top ranked fighter it's going to be worst than the beating rothwell got by Cain it's going to be hilarious... If he is able to smother the crap out of a top ranked fighter like he does to the nOObs in the show I'll be surprised' date=' it will be funny watching him try to even do it to one of them lol ...[/quote']

 

I think he will be just fine.

No ****, Nelson is a tough MF'er. Nobody has seen it in the UFC yet because the talent on TUF was pretty weak. He's confident and composed and doesn't panic in fights. He'll keep his head on his shoulders and give some good fights even if he doesn't win.

Dear Haters' date='

 

You're all Dana White's pawns. Nelson can fight his **** off despite that he's fat. Everybody is making excuses about how they don't like him because he's boring or because he's too heavy. Then you all jump on Marcus' nuts and talk about how great he is. Marcus tried to finish his fights the exact same way Nelson did with the crucifix, didn't hear anybody complaining about that. Nelson is a beast and everyone hates him because he's fat and confident.

 

Nelson dropped two of the best fighters on the show, and I'm DEFINITELY not talking about Kimbo. At least McSweeney was making a serious attempt to escape the crucifix, instead of just lying there like a corpse like Kimbo.

 

Even Dana White is reneging now on his earlier claims. He doesn't want to look like a **** if Roy wins the whole thing. Typical Dana White, most of the other haters will probably do the same.[/quote']

You're just like all the rest of the damage control fans. You'll make excuses for why you're right every day until Roy loses a match and then you'll come yelling about how you knew it the whole time.

 

Admit you were wrong and move on. Rogan said it, even DFW said it...Nelson is for real.

 

And I don't hate Kimbo, he just sucks. Only reason he's kept around is because he's a freakishly huge draw. His skill set is an embarrassment to the sport and he can't compete with anybody in the UFC. DW keeps him around because he sells tickets not because he can win fights.
