    Nelson, but it's a better fight at 130. Loma didn't like the body work and pressure from (a very old Salido) and sure, he was a little green - but less so than Nelson was for Sánchez. I think a physical freak like Nelson with his fast hands, bone-shattering power, granite chin and limitless stamina would grind Loma down. He'd be strong enough to keep Loma, uncomfortable, on the back-foot and if Nelson was to take his foot off the gas and box of his own accord; I think he has the 1-2 to nail Loma's southpaw stance. Azumah's jab was awesome too, he may be able to exploit Loma's T-Rex arms.

    I can see Loma doing really well on the inside here though, since he would have the advantage in both footspeed and footwork, he should be able to use his 'matrix-shift' to pivot around Nelson and work his body, similarly to his fight with Russell. Maybe enough to work the rest of his strategy out? I don't know, but I'm picking Nelson.
