Roy Nelson wants a rematch with Cormier

Monday, November 04, 2013

FigthHubTV’s Marcos Villegas caught up with Roy Nelson, and discussed his loss to Daniel Cormier at UFC 166 last month. Although Cormier outwrestled Nelson (three takedowns to 0 according to FightMetic) and outstruck him by a 74-17 margin, Nelson feels he was outpointed but did not receive an old school beatdown, and wants a rematch.

“I didn’t feel like it was a fight, just a good sparring match,” says Big Country. “I was back in the gym on Monday.”

“I just got out pointed. It’s nothing against Daniel. You know, Daniel – excellent game plan, played it to a tee. I just wish I had two more rounds. That’s about it. Daniel won that night, and he was the better guy. I’d definitely like to do a rematch. I’d fight anybody that I ever lost to.”
