UFC 130 Results: Frank Mir Defeats Roy Nelson
The pony tail is gone from Roy Nelson, lost in the shuffle with his opponent and so are Roy's chances of winning unless he can score a stoppage because Frank Mir is owning him.
TO make matters worse, I think I might've jumped the gun on pointing out that Nelson looks like the fresher fighter as he seems to have suddenly run completely dry while Frank was energized by the break. Mir comes in behind his strikes and grabs yet another takedown against the fence.
A little ground 'n' pound widens the gap on the scorecard before Nelson can get back to his feet.
The big fella can't stay there, however, as Frank goes for the double-leg that's been working like a charm all night and puts another takedown in his back pocket. He simply can't do anything once he's down there and Nelson isn't having any trouble plodding back to his feet.
But we're stuck in an MMA loop as the pattern repeats. Mir must be getting bored of the same ol', same ol' as a couple large elbows ricochet of Nelson's noggin.
The crowd really wants the Vegas native Big Country to pull off the miracle, but it ain't happening.
Of course, Frank Mir is also from Vegas, so...
Horn ends the third and final round, which was another 10-9 for Mir on my card.
Frank Mir defeats Roy Nelson by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26).
Impressive showing by Frank Mir; if homey could throw together some consistency, he might still be a player at 265.
