"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."

you know a few athletes have been on the biggest loser recently. nelson has a good personality. he can go on there lose some weight and it would bring mma to another audience at the same time.

I think Roy could make a huge impact on the 205 division, just like Brandon Vera ;)

What's with the beard criticism though? Does Dana want to promote the man or fuck him?

Dana seems to hate hair because he doesn't have any anymore.

Good one. He isn't going to KO Roy and Roy wins all skill battles.

Who the fuck does he think he is? This cunt Dana White is probably going to fire Roy Nelson if he doesn't shave his beard. Dude is a mega creeper, women beating cheese ball. Keep snorting lines of coke befor interviews while licking your lips and sniffing erratically.

Dana is such a fucking sickening piece of shit.

Point Blank: Roy is awesome but would have the EXACT same problems with guys like Hendo, Shogun, Rashad, Jon Jones, etc. as he does with the Top Ten HWs.

This cut to 205 and you'll be a force is FUCKING NONSENSE.................

IMO Nelson loses to all the top 10 at LHW. His striking is not so good aside from being able to take punishment. Yea his JJ is good but the only time ive really seen him use it in fights is when hes using his weight to his advantage...and he does it well.

I just dont think Nelson has it in him to be a contender at either division.

Why does hair length and facial hair matter so much to dana. This isn't the military.

Jealousy is the only logical answer to that. He cant grow any on his head and he probably doesnt have a thick beard so it looks funny.

 I agree about the beard. Gotta make MMA look classy. Announcers should wear tuxedos and fighters should look smart.

Dana White wants Roy Nelson to fail. He's just cajoling Nelson into fighting at 205 where he'd get raped by Jon Jones, Hendo, etc
