Kicking off the UFC 117 pay-per-view card this Saturday in Oakland will be Junior Dos Santos (11-1) vs. Roy Nelson (15-4), a guaranteed banger that could decide the next title contender in the heavyweight division. Nelson is nearly a 3-1 underdog against the Brazilian phenom, but let’s take a closer look at the matchup and see who really holds the advantages…
Dos Santos: 25
Advantage: Dos Santos
Dos Santos: 6’4, 238 pounds, 77" reach
Nelson: 6’0, 263 pounds, 74" reach; the mass of Nelson’s stomach has been compared to the moon.
Dos Santos: Cigano ("Gypsy")
Nelson: Big Country
Advantage: Nelson. Dos Santos is named after a soap opera character, which isn’t very hardcore at all.
