Roy Nelson applies for NSAC Executive Director job


UFC heavyweight contender Roy Nelson has applied for Keith Kizer's now vacated position with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The job pays nearly six figures, has a compelling benefits package, and is one of the most powerful positions in combat sports.

Steph Daniels has the story for BE.

"I have put my application in," said Nelson. "My wife and I were talking about having something besides fighting to fall back on, and I think I would be able to do some good. This is my hometown, it's where I was born and raised, so I feel it's a way for me to help further the sports."

"I haven't told (the UFC) of my intent, but I don't think they'll mind my intentions here. I think they'd probably be happy that I'm just trying to make the sport better. It would be the building of a relationship that would help the UFC, MMA and all of combat sports in Nevada."

If I could have just one MMA-related wish granted, it would be that Roy would be chosen for this position. And that I could know the true thoughts of Dana's mind upon learning of it.

Maybe not head of the NSAC, but aren't there other roles? They need an MMA voice in there. I hope that 'college' isn't what they look at. All that proves is at some point in your life, $60,000 was spent on mindfucking you into believing you're a lesbian vegan.
