    Probably Travis, even though I hate him.

    Roy didn't look good against Rosholt.

    Rothwell said on MMA hour yesterday that Travis isn't healthy and dropped out of JDS fight and that's how it was offered to him.

    That being said would not surprise me at all for Travis to all of a sudden be healthy when an easier opponent becomes available.

    Travis actually has a broken foot I guess, Rothwell announced it on the MMA hour yesterday because he was actually a replacement for Browne as Browne was gonna fight JDS in Croatia. Otherwise I agree that's the fight I would've made as well.

    I say Big Country vs The Black Beast next. Both guys said after Saturday night that they want as quick of a turnaround as possible. Would be a freakin awesome fight as well

    It would be a good style match-up as Travis would come forward. I'd like to see it. I think Travis would consider it a lose/lose situation though. He's already ranked higher than a win over Big Country would get him.

    I have seen people suggest the Black Beast. I think he has earned a good name and it would be a good opponent for Big Country as far as style as well. I think that fight has a better chance of being made.

    Nelson vs Lewis is a fight I can get behind.

    Agreed.

    Off topic a bit.....anyone have that gif of Zombie Nog vs Nelson? The one that rewinds the KO in reverse.

    The way Roy has looked his entire CAREER I'd pick Travis. Nelson by KO wouldn't surprise me as Browne is very hittable, but he's much faster and more mobile than Roy.
