Roy Nelson has recently been discussed about a potential next opponent for Daniel Cormer, but his manager recently discussed there being no value to that fight for Nelson. Of course, if circumstances were a bit different, Nelson said he would consider a bout with Cormer, under the right stipulations:

You know, I think in our sport, there's a couple guys that get to fight everybody like three or four times, and I'm one of those guys, I guess, that get's to fight everybody once. Like, I've been trying to fight Big Nog since after the Junior dos Santos fight, and that was two years ago. I'm all about the big fights. That's why I think a fight with Big Nog would be great.

As far Daniel (Cormier), I think the reason Mike, my manger, said anything about Daniel, is because he's supposed be getting an immediate title shot at 205. If he's going down to 205, it doesn't really make any sense to fight him, unless we're going to fight for a 205 contendership. Then hey, we can do that, too.

A while back, Roy had a Facebook campaign running to get likes for his page in exchange for dropping down to 205. I was curious to know if this was for kicks or if there was sincerity behind it.

I'm comfortable at heavyweight, for sure. In trying to get down to 205, I was very serious when I made that Facebook bet. I ended up winning the bet, so I didn't have to drop down to 205. I just try to go out and put on a show for the fans, regardless of what weight I'm at.

read entire interview...

Man,The UFC should just say "fuck it" and do this.Would be a good test for Cormier (After that terrible fight versus Mir im sure hed agree that he needs to prove himself a bit more) and if Nelson won hed move down to 205 which is something a lot of us fans have been wanting to see.

Sounds like a great incentive for both of them, could also make for an interesting TUF as they try to get down to 205. Phone Post

I really don't know why everyone thinks nelson is better suited at 205, if he cut down I don't think he'd be top 5 maybe not even top 10 Phone Post 3.0

Roy was 253 with what has to be at least 35% body fat if not higher. If he dropped the shitty eating and worked his ass off he could make 205. Problem is he won't do it.

UFC is afraid to give Big Country a title shot. It'd be a nightmare for them if he were to win the title. Dana lets his personal feelings get to his business.

I like this fight.. the fact that they're even talking is retarded! Neither one of them has fought at 205 and are nowhere near 205 currently, physically speaking or ranking wise yet they want a HW fight with title implications at 205???

I don't mind fighters calling out other fighters but this is getting ridiculous! Shut up and fight and let Joe Silva do his job, even though it seems like he's on crack sometimes. Phone Post

I'd expect the general populace to fuck up their/there, but it's sad when a journalist fucks it up. It's even worse when it also slips by the editor. Double fuck up. Phone Post
