What is UP with this guy?
It's hard to say anything else about him. His conditioning is obviously BAD, and yet he's been a terror thus far.
Thoughts?.. (I'm looking at you Mattt).
Dude just keeps on winning. I'm not a big fan, but so far I can't say he's too bad.
He hits hard and he knows his ground game....he made old Kimbo Slice look like he didn't even know how to scrap and he knocked out 2 very well trained and respected fighters.....not TKOs...really knocked out.
Judging a book by it's cover isn't always productive.
I can see the TV value in what he's got going on (much like Tank had)... but I don't know how much of that is just gimmicky attention-garnering and how much of Roy is actual martial artist.
Yeah, time will tell I guess. I'm interested to see how he'd do against a Lesnar or Mir myself. In the meantime he's making bank and getting noticed at least.
I like Roy. Hope he does well.
ROY VS. MIR
did you see his fight last night? 39sec TKO. he's throws some powerful blows. he reminds me of some of the founding fighters in UFC. back in the bare-knuckle days.

Ah, s'all good.
I just haven't seen evidence of suckery as of yet. I do agree with Mattt that the gut will do nothing to help him. His stamina and flexibility especially are both going to suffer.
But who knows...he might be 6 months away from trimming down and getting serious about his conditioning, at which point he won't look much different from any of the other heavyweights.
