What happened to Roy Nelson on Saturday night? How was former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir able to dominate him?

Simple, it’s Dan Hardy’s fault. Or more specifically, the British wrestling that Hardy imparted on Nelson in training leading up to the fight with Mir.

Or maybe there was a little jesting in that answer from Nelson. Okay, a lot of jesting.

Nelson actually made no bones about his performance against Mir. He feels he just got outwrestled by a bigger, stronger guy in Mir.
