    I dont think Roy wants to bring this one to the ground. He will be looking to KO werdum but thats alot easier said than done. There both black belts on the ground but I have to give the advantage to Werdum as far as being on his back. It will be a close fight with Werdum being the winner by UD. My opinion. Both evenly matched standup skills I think.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Big Country catches him with something and devastates him.

    But yes, playing a ground game with Werdum would be a silly move!

    Should be interesting.

    I think Roy wins this rather easily. adice89 said Evenly matched standup skills? What the hell has Werdum ever shown on the feet? Roy via TKO

    Ditto. I’d say Roy’s standup is considerably better, plus his chin is far more robust than werdum’s. I think it’ll be a comfortable tko win for Roy too, just can’t see anything else happening.

    Werdum has been trying to play possum in his last few fights. (acting as if a strike has floored him so a guy rushes in thinking he’s hurt.)
    Same way he beat fedor. I’m not sure if he’d want to let gig country on top of him though. Unless Roy gets caught up in the moment I can’t see it working. I’m sure his training partners have been drill into his head “position before striking.”
