Frank Mir and Roy Nelson collided in the main event of Bellator 231 with both fighters on a recent losing skid.

Frank Mir (18-13) is on a four-fight losing streak and is 2-8 in his last 10. He is also searching for his first Bellator win after losing by TKO to Fedor Emelianenko and Javy Ayala. His last win was a knockout over Todd Duffee in 2015.

Roy Nelson (23-17) is on a three-fight losing streak but is 3-7 in his last 10 fights. He is also just 1-3 in Bellator with his lone win being a decision win over Ayala. In his most recent fight, “Big Country” lost to Mirko Cro Cop by unanimous decision and before that was knocked out by Sergei Kharitonov.

In the first round, the two were feeling each other out with Roy Nelson walking down Frank Mir looking for that big shot. Yet, the former UFC heavyweight champion is doing a good job of using leg kicks to keep Nelson at distance. The leg kicks are starting to add up and making a red mark on Big Country’s leg.

The fight did not have a whole lot of action as they two were hesitant to engage to no surprise as Frank Mir said he didn’t want this fight at all. The loser is also expected to be cut from Bellator so neither wanted to make a mistake in this fight. But, Mir’s leg kicks were a huge factor in this fight as he won the scrap by unanimous decision.
