Big Country Eyeing WWE Opportunities Against Brock Lesnar | UFC NEWS

“I think [King Mo opened] a lot of doors for a lot of different fighters, and it actually opens up a lot of fighter’s eyes that there’s other ways to make a living, that you can actually do both sports. It’s like it’s okay to be a Deion Sanders playing football and baseball, or like a Bo Jackson playing football and baseball. It’s good that athletes can do that. After I beat Pee Wee, I might just have to call out Brock Lesnar. I might just have to go to WWE because I might just have to call him out, go to WWE, and whoop his ass.”

Surprise surprise!

“Big Country” is looking for multi-sport opportunities; at least he is putting the prospect of such out there to the world in his recent interview with MMAWeekly.

Following in the footsteps of King-Mo is probably not an option for the ZUFFA signed fighter because they keep a pretty tight leash on their talent, but let’s face it, Roy has half a foot out the door already and if he doesn’t pick up a victory this weekend he might be able to make the crossover.

    Good to think ahead Career wise for Roy

  2. James says:

    Sounds like Roy really doesn’t want to cut down to 205.

      Keep on keeping on.. those double whoppers…!

      For a pro athlete this attitude is hard to understand. Sure, he is one hard MOFO, but you have to wonder what he could achieve if he gave 100%. And no-one dare tell me he already gives anywhere near 100% when he comes in that fat. He has so much potential — no-one has ever been so good and so fat before – but it is a shame that we will never see him raise the 205lb belt due to lack of commitment to his diet. Mark my words, if he doesn’t cut to 205 he will always be a low-to-middle tier heavy-weight. Simply put, no-one that fat these days will ever win the heavy-weight title. Not when you have guys cutting rock-solid physiques to get down to the 265lbs limit!

    Hm… he should do it, I think it would be great! As far as it looks that B.Lesnar is “pushing” Big Country inside WWE, maybe R.Nelson can also push B.Lesnar back to MMA… Can it be possible?

  4. Xaninho says:

    Both sports? WWE is not a sport it’s entertainment.

  5. Michael hamlin says:

    Hi is a fat ass!!!

  6. Broman145 says:

    Nobody can hate on Roy Nelson, he’s a great MMA fighter with a steel chin and ALWAYS puts up a fight and a performance. I support Nelson on whatever decisions he makes 😀

    • Fitch GOAT says:

      I dont like him anymore after he laughed about tricking people to liking his FB page. He will never go anywhere in the UFC. Yes he puts on good fights.. but for HW he is a joke

  7. Khaos says:

    I don’t watch wrestling and I think he’s a brilliant MMA fighter so I’d prefer him to drop to 205 and make a Fedor-like dent there… but if not and he can go to WWE and get himself a payday then good for him!

  8. rlm says:

    I kind of miss Brock being in ufc, because he left we won’t get to see him fight Big Country, Chieck Kongo, Mark Hunt, or any other of the heavyweights.

  9. GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

    I just can’t picture Roy Nelson all greased up with baby oil in WWE. Sorry Roy would need to hit the JUICE now if he thinks he has any chance of getting into fake wrestling

  10. Xaninho says:

    He’s a good punching bag though.

  11. Scotty says:

    Roy doesnt see himself as a fighter, he sees himself as an entertainer.. Reason he doesnt care about a title shot or dropping to 205 to make a run at it.. He likes looking like a fool(hair, beard, fat stomach), tries to be funny in the media, likes to take a beating win or lose for the fans and get a paycheck.. Kind of like WWE, have a stupid look, have stupid lines, take a fake beating for the fans and get paid.. So i guess he can transition good..

  12. Clay says:

    Roy’s credentials are legit. He’s one of the best heavyweights. I just can’t help but feel like he’s getting burnt out a little and thinking of life outside of UFC. Gonna miss big country

  13. monkey juice says:

    Roy needs to cut some fuckin weight. Fat fuckin dummy.

  14. stephen Riddle says:

    Dude is pretty ripped now stop hating!
