White: Everything Nelson says is asinine

by Maggie Hendricks | source: yahoo.com

Heavyweights Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin will coach this season, but word is that Nelson and UFC president Dana White battle more than Nelson and Carwin. White sat down with Yahoo! Sports and talked about his feelings on Nelson.

And it got personal.

White also had choice comments on how Nelson's appearance affects his sponsorships, his shape, and how he wants to see Nelson take his career more seriously.

But the point is Roy doesn't care. Being rich is not everyone's dream. Some people don't want to conform to a certain image. They feel like they are selling out.

All of you who say Roy is not talented are just haters. Even JDS couldn't put him away. He's got one punch KO power and a, uh, massive ground game. Last time I checked Roy's career was doing just fine. He's constantly in the mix at heavyweight, fans like him, and he's coaching on TUF. This is bad how?

As a fan, this is what frustrates me.He obviously has the talent, drive, and heart.I understand not everyone can look like a body builder, but he's literally carrying around at least 15-20lb of fat on his belly.You're telling me that has ZERO adverse affect on him? It just seems like he doesn't really give a shit about being the absolute best he can be.That attitude just turns me off on a fighter.I have more appreciation for guys like Forrest (before he stopped giving a shit) who seem to have zero natural talent, but work their asses off to be the best they can.

Roy is being Roy. Which is more real than when Carwin tries to stir things up on here. Carwin is a quiet guy who doesnt give soundbites. Hence, why Shane's interview to hype his Lesnar fight was so bad that even he came on here and made Nyquil jokes. I just want to see them BOTH be who they are. Roy is the guy you think he is and Shane is a monster guy who could break you that is relatively demure and easygoing. As for anyone having an issue with Roy, would you rather have a bunch of Rory MacDonald's?Because Rory won't sell ANY PPV buys based off of personality. Unless he can start becoming a real life 'American Psycho', ( Bale not Bonnar); he is essentially a glass of milk with some athletic skills. Like it or not, you HAVE to have sizzle with the steak. It's entertainment. Unless you can tell me how many folks pay to watch the Mundials. You just can't fake it with these created personalities like Sonnen as the awesome heel or Jones as the pious nice guy. Be who you are and if you have personality, it WILL shine through. Roy has it.

Roy could clean himself a little more, be more marketable and still be Roy Nelson. His street bum beard is fucking terrible, but he could go for a John Hendricks esque beard, he also was appealing to the fans when he had short hair and KTFO Schaub. It's not like a small change will completely ruin his image.

It's actually the opposite, he cares greatly about his appearance, that's why he's keeping his ridiculous physique. He's not talented or doesn't work hard enough to rely on his fighting alone so he needs a schtick.Dan Hardy continues to do the rooster look, even though he isn't 14, for the same reason.

Dana's ignoring the whole reason why Carwin hates Roy Nelson....It's because Roy's been taking it to Carwin on twitter about the Steroids... And so much for Muscles Dana, Carwins gonna gas roy has an iron chin he will weather the storm Round 2 submission Brock style lawl.
