Click here to watch Amir Sadollah, Roy Nelson and Dana White talk about:
Dana - "Every time I make decisions on who's going to be coaches or who's going to be in the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, there's no real process to it. Obviously we're trying to think of: How can we make next season exciting? How can we make next season better?... and Kimbo just popp'ed into my head. I put that challenge out there to him and I reached out to his manager and we started talking. It was really that easy. We probably talked for 3 weeks and we got the deal done."
Roy Nelson's training habits:
Dana - "So you're not training with a major camp right now?"
Roy - "No. Well yeah but no."
D - "What the f*ck does that mean? Are you training with a major camp or are you not?"
R - "Well I have Marco, Amir Sadollah's striking coach and I'm helping Todd Duffee out; training at my house in Vegas."
D - "Why don't you hook up with like a Couture or anybody?"
R - "Usually when I go to those places, I have to teach. I don't want to teach"
D - "You're over there teaching Couture?"
R - "Of course… that's how I roll."
D - "I think that hurts you as a fighter, to not be with a major camp. Not be sparring and training with guys that are going to push you everyday."
Roy Nelson's attitude:
Dana - "I don't remember being pissed about the Kimbo stoppage. Roy had him down in the first round and was hitting him. Then Roy jumps up and looks at me like "What the f*ck Dana?" Like I'm up I'm over there telling the ref, "Don't stop this fight". Like I have input or something. That was my first beginning of getting f*cking irritated with Roy Nelson. Then he runs over and asks me to go get him a f*cking Whopper. That was my second starting to get f*cking irrated with Roy Nelson. But we have no input what the judges do; we have no say what the judges or the referees do."
Dana - "Rampage is a friend of mine. I love him and I'm going to work through this thing with him. I don't want to see him lose this money."
