    On ten days notice, a Roy Nelson fight is an excellent bit of booking by EliteXC/Afflicition.

    Had both companies had a few more weeks or months to put together this fight you'd expect the originally proposed Arlovski/Barnett fight but none of these guys (Arlovski, Barnett, Rothwell, Nelson etc.) became available until the Affliction event was cancelled.

    Why beat Rothwell and then fight Nelson?
    Because of the availability of fighters on short notice.
    Because Nelson is better than Rothwell anyway.

    A) Nelson has had five straight wins since he fought Rothwell

    B) That fight was a robbery anyway

    C) This is EliteXC, who are building their promotion around a female "star" who hasn't made weight for a single one of her fights and are headlining this show with Ken Shamrock, who's riding a five fight losing streak; do you think they give a **** about rankings?
