UFC 130: Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson Promises to Be Great Fight
UFC 130 Features Compelling Matchup in Mir vs. Nelson
As Frank Mir and Roy Nelson get set to fight Saturday night in UFC 130, the fighting world is buzzing as to who will ultimately come out on top.
Mir has a 14-5 record, Nelson a 16-5 record.
Mir's strength is his submission technique, which has several fighters picking him to win.
But Nelson is also known for being tough to take down, and if the fight remains as a standup match, then Nelson's perseverance, as well as his world-class experience, could see him come out victorious.
Said heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, via MMAFrenzy.com:
“Watching ‘Big Country’ (Nelson) versus dos Santos, I saw the kind of heart that Roy had to gut it out. I just see him doing the same with Frank for the whole fight, making it a tough fight for Mir. So I’m going to go with Big Country by decision.”

Velasquez's point is well-taken. Nelson is a considerably tough fighter that seems to have a chance to beat anyone on any given night. I also believe this fight is going to stay off the ground, and that would benefit Nelson tremendously.
Look for it to be a great fight regardless of who wins.
