Roy Nelson is about as picky of a a fighter as he is an eater. Big Country has never met a burger he didn’t want to devour and a heavyweight he didn’t want to go to war with. Now after the whole Roy Jones Jr. contract debacle finished and discarded like a giant plate of manicotti, Nelson wants to make it clear that he isn’t just satisfied with banging against Frank Mir at UFC 130, he wants the entire upper echelon of the heavyweight division to be served to him Man VS Food style: all in one incredibly decadent serving. Check out what the TUF 10 winner had to say to MMA Junkie about all things size XXL:
“We can do a steel-cage match. Me, Shane, Frank and Brock can do a ladder match. We could do tag team, but I’m not sure who I’d want as my partner. I guess if we’re doing professional wrestling, I’d probably have to take Brock just because he’s done it before. He’s more of an entertainer and more professional that way.”
“I’ll fight Shane Carwin, Frank Mir, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Brock Lesnar, Junior Dos Santos, Cain Velasquez – any of those guys I’m cool with,” “You can even throw in a Sean McCorkle or whatever.
“For me, it really doesn’t matter. My goal is always to be champion. From champion, then it’s to fight the best in the world, but if I’ve got to fight the best in the world to become champion, then that works, too.”
“If fans want to know about me, they should go to my Twitter account or Roy Nelson.com,” “They can always ask me a question, and I’ll tell them the truth.”
I wonder if Roy is the type of guy who separates all of his food portions from each other and wont let them touch, or if he is the type of guy who throws everything on a plate and then smothers it in gravy. Either way, the only things Roy needs in this world to keep happy is a knee brace, some 4 oz gloves and a bottle of TUMS.
