Throwback Video: Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson at 2003 Grappler's Quest Superfight Tournament

UFC heavyweights Frank Mir and Roy Nelson are scheduled to face each other in the Octagon at UFC 130 on Memorial Day. However, while this will be their first full contact mixed martial arts meeting, it will not be the first time they've competed against each other in a combat sports setting. Nelson and Mir met in a 2003 Grappler's Quest superfight. The grappling match was part of an eight-man absolute superfight tournament that also included UFC fighters Brandon Vera and Diego Sanchez. A much trimmer Roy Nelson defeated Mir, Vera, and Sanchez to win the tournament.
