Roy Nelson Thinks A Win Over Junior Dos Santos=Title Shot

New, 12 comments


The video may have been shot before yesterday, because we posted that Junior Dos Santos confirmed that he will be fighting Roy Nelson at UFC 117.  Now I like Nelson, and he's been impressive with his two knockouts in the UFC.  However, to say that a title shot should be waiting on him should he beat Junior Dos Santos is no guarantee in my opinion.  i mean Nelson beat Brendan Schaub and Stefan Struve, both of which are no where near contendership in the UFC heavyweight division.  Now Junior Dos Santos has been putting in work in the heavyweight division, including 5 wins with all of them via finishing his opponent.  A win over him would be a good notch in his belt, but I don't think Nelson would deserve a title shot off those 3 wins.  What say you?
