Nelson: I’m all about making everybody happy


Roy Nelson has won three consecutive bouts in the heavyweight division with three impressive first round TKOs/KOs. Now he may just be a win away from a heavyweight title fight, but he's happy to fight whoever the UFC wants next:

As of Monday, Nelson was ahead of Hunt in the heavyweight rankings -- Nos. 6 and 9, respectively. Hunt could move ahead of Nelson with an upset of dos Santos, making a showdown between them more intriguing.

The winner of that fight, however, will have a hard sell convincing UFC officials he deserves an immediate title shot. But a win over Cormier and Nelson is right there knocking at the champion’s door.

“I want to fight the best in the world. And fighting Daniel, you know, he’s an Olympian, I’d like to welcome him to UFC,” Nelson said after his win Saturday night. “As for Mark Hunt, if he gets past [dos Santos] that would be great. If he doesn’t, I’d still fight Mark Hunt because the fans want to see that one.

“I’m all about making everybody happy.”

Always a fan of Big Country. An elite grappler in a fat man's body that knocks people the fuck out.
