MMA  > General MMA  > Roy Nelson's conspiracy theory - Who agrees?

Here it is:

So the conspiracy basically comes down to the fact that Shane Carwin has no one to fight in June. I think Brock Lesnar will walk off the TUF set and then Carwin will take his spot or Frank Mir will come in to "save the day" and fight JDS for title contention. The reason I believe Frank would be the guy is because Mir is coming off a win and I was already supposed to fight Shane so fans were already hyped to see it. Or Carwin could move in to face JDS and I could still face Frank but it doesn't really matter to me as to who fights who because all that really matters is the fans want to see me fight somebody. A lot of things could happen over the next six weeks but it seems a bit off that Carwin doesn't have an opponent right now and all of the top heavyweights are spoken for.

wow....
well.... he got a point about JDS... at least to the American public, this would propel him.... if this works, I mean. Like I said, if the American public does not get turned off by his poor English, then he might become better known.

but I don't understand the angle of Lesnar leaving.... if Dana knew Lesnar was about to leave, why waste a spot? Wouldn't it be better to use it for someone who is going to fight? (I mean even if someone replaces him, he will always be viewed as replacement, not the main fighter). And what will this mean if JDS loses the fight against someone who is just a filler?


I don't know... it could backfire.
While I don't like Lesnar being picked, IF this shows starts with him I would rather see him fighting at the end of it...

They have already fought. Wasn't pretty.

Will Nogueira be ready to go by then?
