Following his brutal knockout victory over Cheick Kongo at UFC 159 at April's end, Roy Nelson probably expected to enjoy some time away from the cage. 

Instead, less than one month later, he found himself stepping in against Stipe Miocic in the co-main event of UFC 161 on Saturday. The card takes place at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, featuring a light heavyweight headliner between Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson.

Nelson enters the contest looking for his second win in seven weeks. A victory over Miocic would extend his winning streak to four. Meanwhile, Miocic, who is seven years younger than Nelson, looks to avoid dropping two fights in a row. 

According to Bovada, Miocic is more than a 2-to-1 underdog in this contest, as Nelson sits at a healthy -270. But is the matchup really that lopsided? Take a look at our head-to-toe breakdown for this heavyweight clash.
