    Who has the better chance of pulling the upset?

    I actually think Diego looks in shape and ready to go!

    Roy. He could hypothetically land one of his whoppers and put out Cormier.

    Roy's got a chance for the KO. I can't imagine any way for Diego to win. Diego's not going to roll over and die though. He'll give Melendez a fight. But he won't be able to beat Melendez on skill or cardio.

    I agree with you TS.

    Might be going against the grain but Diego will at least offer resistance wherever the fight goes.

    Cormier can and most likely will easily take Roy down and punch his face in.

    Roy does have a chance. He always has a chance.

    BUT.... its Diego Sanchez we are talking about. All he has to do is prod forward, eat punches, get bloody, not get taken down and somehow the judges could still score it for him

    Of the same mind as the masses: HW one punch power for the finish.

    Both have a decent chance. Diego looked to be back in amazing shape for this fight. Way better than he looked against Gomi.

    It's foolish to count either of these guys out, they certainly both know how to win

    probably Roy and a big right hand tho

    Roy, just because there's a chance he lands one ridiculously nasty haymaker and gets a KO/TKO.

    I'll go with Nelson just because of the power that he does possess.
