    Who would have won if these two heavy hitters fought each other in their peak forms?

    They both have serious KO power but not the greatest gas tanks. Nelson has the legendary chin but is Carwin powerful enough to put Roy's lights out?

    Would there be much grappling? Could Carwin take Roy down if he got rocked?

    Something tells me there would be a lot of clinching against the cage, especially once they get tired.

    Something tells me Roy's chin is the difference but Roy has still lost a lot of decisions. Then again, Carwin never won a decision in his career.

    What do you think would happen if these two fought?

    Nelson is a poor man's carwin

    The only advantage Roy had is chin but carwin ate a ton of bombs from jds and kept on going

    Both have granite chins but first round Carwin would land enough brutal strikes to stop 3 Nelsons.

    Was really looking forward to this back when they were coaching TUF. Shame it didnt happen.
    Roy had the mental edge, I think. And better grappling for sure

    Carwin and he had one bad fight. Great gas tank against JDS.

    i'm sure roy's chin could hold up, would probably catch a beating like the one JDS gave him but he'd survive.


    carwin decision, maybe roy by decision if carwin gassed in the first.

    Carwin scrambles Nelson's eggs and then armbars his unconscious carcass.
