Cormier wants Nelson to re-sign and settle up
UFC heavyweights Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson have had a bit of smack talk back and forth in the media as of late, and Cormier would like nothing more to settle it in the cage. However, one problem. Nelson currently is not yet under contract with the UFC:
Cormier told MMAFighting.com on Thursday that he wants to fight Nelson at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston in what will be his last fight at heavyweight.
“Roy and I still have some unfinished business,” Cormier said. “I hope he re-signs with the UFC, so we can settle what he started two months ago.
“I want to find a way to give him a pass for his performance against Stipe [Miocic at UFC 161] since he took that fight on such short notice. In my eyes, that loss didn’t do much to diminish his place in the UFC heavyweight division.”
