Title says it all... this guy didnt start really working on his stand up till 2009... 2009!!!! That is INSANE for how he has stood with the very best stand up heavyweight in history and didnt get finished, beat cro cop(say what you want about him being washed up, roy had only been working on his stand up for like 2 years at the time of the fight and still won! didnt get outclassed in the standup!!!!), his losses to werdum and mir were not pretty, but he didnt get finished!! That is impressive. Looked fine in the stand up vs Mir too IMO, he just got out outwrestled which was more surprising to see him raggdolled. If this guy looked the part, he would be getting all sorts of love for not getting finished and being able to stand in there against the best, but because hes a fatty, people write him off as a joke. Roy Nelson is a HELL OF A FIGHTER. HELL OF A FIGHTER. Top 10 heavy for sure, and idc what anyone says, hes only getting better. People who say AA KedhimTFO dont realise, he wassnt going hard in his stand up at the point in his career, and hell Roy was winning that before the BS stand up! Just want to give this guy props as a heavyweight. Get his fatty rep out of your heads boys. The guy knows how to BRAND and is very good at it, which is why he is popular. I just think real fight fans should give this guy the respect he deserves as a fighter. Not saying he is a GOAT or top 5, but top 10 for sure and seems to be getting better. Dont write him off cause he fat and before you call me some fat guy whos on his bandwaggon for that, I weigh in at 160 and im 5'11. I just think this guy gets no respect because of his looks and the way he brands himself as a fatty/joke/average joe. Hes not. Thoughts?
