First off, as a mullet enthusiast, I must say that Nelson's mullet here is off-the-charts. Those long flowing locks blast past the likes of Andre Agassi and "The Boz" in the sports mullet hall-o-fame. Congrats to ‘Big Country".
The TUF 10 winner has been campaigning for a shot at a the title since winning the show in late 2009, and a win here would certainly inch him closer to that goal. It's easier said than done though, as Mir, the former two-time UFC heavyweight champ, looks as motivated and focused to return to the top of the division as we've seen him in years. It should be fun.
