Nelson: Dana White is like my wife

by Ariel Helwani | source:

"You just got remember that mine and Dana White's relationship is like were a husband and wife," Nelson said. "I do the man's stuff around the house. I do the fighting, all the man's stuff and he does all the woman stuff — all the yapping."

When host Ariel Helwani pushed Nelson further about why he was speaking out about his relationship with White now, after seemingly patching up previous rocky points, Nelson became more confusing.

"He’s more the 21st century, he's the one who goes out and probably makes more money. Where as I might make sure the house is clean, and all that, but at the end of the day I still do the man's stuff — the lawn, the fighting, all the hard stuff."

The Las Vegas-based heavyweight — who coaches against Shane Carwin during the 16th season of The Ultimate Fighter, which debuts Friday on FX — said him and White had a "separation" period after fallout from the show.

"It’s one of those relationships were there's love and hate," Nelson said. "We’re in one of those things like a speed bump. I don’t know if we need a separation from one another.
