"Big Country" Fools Us All | No Intentions Of Dropping Weight Following Facebook Challenge


Remember when Roy Nelson put his faith in UFC fans to decide whether or not he would stay at heavyweight or drop down to 205 pounds?

Well, apparently it was all just a dirty joke.

It was about a month ago that “Big Country” went on record and proclaimed that if he received 100,000 likes on his facebook fan page within a two week period that he would dedicate himself to diet and training and drop down to the UFC’s light-heavyweight division, where his frame is more suited.

The likes flooded in, we here at BJPENN.COM supported his decision and helped promote the competition for “likes” to his facebook, but Roy has backed off and decided to not honor the challenge.

At least for now…

Head to page 2 to see the video where he addressed this issue and laughs it off.

  2. Jake says:

    Cain looks kind of awkward sittin next to jr since he just got KO’d by him haha

  3. UFC VIDEOS says:

    best viral campaign that never happened

  4. Michael B says:

    Pg 2 isn’t loading for me so Idk if you site there but Roy’s twitter says he’s still planning to make the drop to 205 but has “some business to finish” at heavyweight first.. plus I’m sure it’ll take him atleast 6 months or more to make that drop in a healthy matter, he should take atleast one more payday before that kind of overhaul

  5. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Damn you Roy! You funny fat bastard.

  6. JBizzle says:

    He never said he wouldnt go down… do people understand diction?

  7. he could make 205 if he wanted to, really.

  8. Big J says:

    That’s cool, it’s his decision….I was one of them that liked his page, but whatever…honestly though, as he fights the top tier heavyweights, I think he’ll continue to lose….the same way he has against JDS, Mir, Fabricio Werdum, and now maybe Silva. I’ll give him this though, his fights are exciting and I find myself pulling for him. Who doesn’t want to chubby kid with the mullet to win?

  9. Grease St. Pierre says:

    fat ass is gunna fat ass

  10. ALEX says:

    OLE ROY THE GOOD OLE BOY IS A FAT AND LAZY SLOB!! I DIDNT LIKE HIM ON THE UFC ULTIMATE FIGHTER SHOW. NOW HE JUST SOLIDIFIED MY DISLIKE AND BELIEFS ABOUT HIM. IT TAKES MORE THAN THICK SKULL AND A THICK GUT TO BE IN THE UFC CAGE IF U ASK ME !!! THIS GOOD OLE BOY ROY IS A FAKE A LAZY FAKE!!! PEACE OUT!

    • Christian says:

      CAPITALIZING EVERYTHING MAKES YOU LOOK RETARDED. And having a gut doesnt make him lazy. Anyone who fights in the UFC works their ass off to get there.

  11. Jb says:

    Alex your a moron. He’s one of the best HWY weights there is. Great guy to the fans and other fighters. That” fat ass” would destroy you and six of your friends. For god sake have you not watched his fights!??!! Un-educated mma moron.

    • McLovin says:

      Are you kidding me? The guy gasses after the first round. Pretty simple imo.

    • TheCrippler says:

      You’re both stupid. Him for typing like a complete retard, and you for thinking Roy Nelson is a good heavy weight let akin one of the best. Dude keeps getting dummied by top fighters and it’s not even close. All he does is take beatings.

  12. RVG says:

    thats funny.

    not really.

  13. Eric says:

    Pedro is being a Drama Queen again with how he titled this article. Anyone who follows Roy on Facebook or Twitter knows what he said and that he has another fight at heavyweight and then will face the decision of making the cut.

  14. He said he would drop to 205 if he ADDED 100,000 “likes” in 2 weeks he started somewhere around 30,000 and is barely above 100,000 now.

  15. GreenTeaBagger says:

    I hope he chokes on a cheeseburger and I will never watch an event that he is in.

    • SecretTeaBagger says:

      so you’ll be missing cain vs mir AND jds vs overeem just because roy nelson is on the card? thats so dumb.

  16. McLovin says:

    Laugh it up fatty! You’re career is a big joke too.

  17. jbeamazing says:

    roy your a turd

  18. Trevor says:

    I followed this the whole time and the deal was for Big Country to “add” 100k fans not to get to 100k fans. The people didn’t make the quota so he doesn’t have to drop the weight. As much as I would like to see big country be a contender in 205 but it’s not happening. Stop being dickheads and smashing on the mullet… You too BJ, stop posting headlines that aren’t true!

  19. Popp24 says:

    People act like he can drop to 205 so easily; it’s gonna take some time. On Twitter he said he still plans too in the future.

  20. jairo sun says:

    Roy Nelson is a fucking fat ass!

  21. MMACRAVER says:

    Hah… whatever then.. The move down is in his own best interest.

    People will only appreciate someone who can take a beating for so long…

    Enjoy getting fucked up by all the heavyweights who actually fucking take care of themselves.

  22. Ruben says:

    fuck that fat fuck

  23. Lauryl says:

    What a potential he has to be an incredibly AWESOME fighter! He has incredible stamina, the guy can take a hell of a punch…heck tons of hard f’n punches over and over and has great fighting skills! That’s where it stops…he is a fighter that will lose his steam fast if he doesn’t lose weight. Eventually it will catch up to him like it does all of us. Its not healthy! I know we can all imagine how F’n AWESOME he will be if he was 50 lbs lighter!! On stoppable!! Just imagine!

  24. Wow Roy, way to bust your fanbase down to a minimum. Don’t make a promise to your fans that you never intended to follow through with. Besides, you are frankly a joke to begin with. Its one thing to be a few pounds over weight walking into a fight, but if you are walking into the octogon with a beerkeg, thats just sad. One of these days you are gonna get seriously dropped and you are gonna realized just how much of an idiot you are for this. Just sayin.

  25. Magoo says:

    Do your thing big country,people hate you or love you!! There’s no in between, as for me I got total respect for you dude you always leave it in the cage win lose or draw,and I’d also think you got one of the toughest chins in the business…screw the haters, keep on truckin Roy.

    • Boom Goes The Dynamite says:

      Roy is a couple of losses away from bagging groceries. He doesnt have the power or stamina to ever be a top contending Heavyweight… To think of him against someone like Overeem is laughable. He is lazy, and an idiot… I hope he enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame because after his next loss he is most likely done. He is keeping the light heavyweight option open in case Dana tries to drop his fat ass… that way maybe he would get a Strike 4! Idiot!
