    I'm just glad the arbitrary use of the word "tentpole" wasn't in this Bellaforce story.

    Mirko's been looking pretty dreamy lately. All beefed up.

    Nelson's washed and Crocop back on the gear makes this fight seem a lot more competitive than previous years. Really happy to see Minakov back in a spotlight fight but honestly think he could benefit from getting a win over any of the four other HWs announced for this show, since Kongo's name is pretty much associated with boring dolldrums nowadays and he's always kind of a trap fight with minimal upside if he were to win, given his age and overall ceiling.

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Roy KO’d. I used to be a fan, but now I consider him an oversized dipshit.

    I'll never hold a grudge against Nelson for the mere fact that he kicked John McCarthy.

    Hopefully Cro Cop is juicing hard core. Nothing against Roy but I love seeing Cro Cop smash things.

    Interesting enough, the last time Mirko fought in the US was his first fight with Roy Nelson back in 2011.

    Roy KO’d him, right? The Brendan Shaub ko or Mirko was the won that hurt. My mind won’t fully accept that it happened. It did though, didn’t it?

    Yeah Roy finished him, took his back, flattened him out and TKO'd him.

    What they're not telling you is, he was tested for sedatives.

    The thing is you can get like that without taking steroids. People just have no idea how with proper diet, in this case a high protein diet and carbohydrates at the right times you can totally get large. But... he is prob on something just because this has happened before,no?
