Dana White and the Fertitta’s seem to have a bit of a love hate relationship with Roy Nelson. They really like the potential Roy has but they just do not really like his image or his methods of ‘traneing UFC.’ They were so annoyed by Nelson’s attitude that they sat down and had a serious discussion with him recently that was probably reminiscent of those talks your parents had with you every summer when they opened your end of year report card. The talks where your parents said you were in need of an attitude adjustment and would be grounded to your room all summer. Those talks usually left you storming off up the forest green carpetted stairs to your room spewwing verbiage about all of the hate you had in your heart for those evil parents of yours.
Roy’s version of a teenage angst filled stomp off happened at UFC 146, only it was whole lot more destructive and intimidating than you dramatically slamming your bedroom door. While you slamming your door was likely to get your Dad running up the stairs after you snatching you up by your neck and threatening to obliterate your very existence, Roy’s act of insubordination instead seems to have impressed his boss. Roy showed Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta what he thought of that attitude adjustment talk via a large overhand right fist KO of Dave Herman and then an immediate finger point at Dana White and rant at Lorenzo. As a matter of fact, Dana even tells Ariel Helwani in this video that he accepts knowing full well that Roy would like to shove that KO right up his pooper like an act of strange sodomistic rebellion. Personally I don’t ever want to accept anything that makes me envision any ass and Roy Nelson’s fist together, but hey to each their own.
