"I don't know how that guy makes 205," said UFC President Dana White. "He has enough trouble getting down to 250.
"I would be shocked ... or maybe he just shaves and gets down to 205 ... I don't know how he's gonna do it.
"I'm done with it. I've encouraged him to shave his face and cut his hair, too, but he doesn't wanna to listen to that either, so ... whatever.
"I like him. He's a tough guy with a ton of heart. He goes in there and give it his everthing. My thing I've always said to him, I'd like to see you take this thing serious and try to rip off some weight. When you've got a chin like that, and a heart like that ... and he can really knock people out, too.
"If he really could get to 205, he'd be a force at 205. He'd be a scary dude. He's got great wrestling, awesome submissions, great chin, a ton of heart, and has knockout power.
"I mean, who knows what Roy Nelson could really achieve if he applied himself ... You've got to want to do it. You've got to want to get in there and take it serious. Seriously diet, seriously train, and then you're going to have to cut some weight the day of the fight.
"As long as I've known Roy Nelson, as long as he's been in this business, he's been big. And it's not like when you get these guys that fight at 185 and they wrestled their entire high school and maybe college careers and they're used to cutting weight. They know what it takes.
"I don't think that's gonna be easy for a guy who's been big his whole life like he has."
