    I would match him up with Antonio Silva or Derrick Lewis.

    Give him one more crack at JDS to get back in the mix or feed him a bum.

    I enjoyed their first go round. Would watch again but JDS is fighting Big Ben.

    Nelson vs Mir 2 sounds good as well but Mir is fighting Hunt.

    What about Travis Brown when his tootsy heals up? That shouldn't be long, I'd think. That'll also get him back in the mix.

    I like the Bigfoot match-up TS.

    Bigfoot has had a great career but needs to be KO'd into retirement.

    After a good meal he's ready for his big rematch with Andrei.

    I was just coming back in here to say this. I thought he got a raw deal stand up in their first fight.

    Sold on both those fights TS

    But if it was up to me
    Big Country vs Big Foot
    Black Beast vs Rosholt/Struve

    Bigfoot sounds like a solid option... Though he should hang 'em up.

    I wouldn't be against the Black Beast match up. IF Bigfoot is still going to fight it should be against Rosholt. He doesn't need to face another heavy hitter in his career.

    How can it not be the black beast? I want to see a good fight at HW! Lewis has already KO'd Rosholt when they were in legacy.

    Derrick Lewis sounds fun. He needs a step up and Roy isn't in title contention. Plus he will bang with Roy.

    He is still going to be a gatekeeper. I see him losing to Browne and beating Black Beast.

    Travis Browne, he's pretty overrated I think Roy could beat him

    Roy barely beat perhaps the most boring fighter alive. Not a big deal. roy should just retire, to be honest. He can't beat anyone in the top 10. if that lay and pray guy is in the top 10, then the HW should be ashamed of themselves.

    I think we get the whole Roy Nelson thing at this point.

    Let's just find him large animals and see which ones he can knock out. We can start with a Moose and work from there.
