UFC heavyweight and fan favorite Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson will be stepping back into the octagon when he faces off with Josh Barnett at UFC Fight Night 75 in Saitama, Japan inside Saitama Super Arena on Sept. 27, 2015.
Ahead of that fight Nelson stopped by AXS TV and said that after he takes on Barnett, and hopefully beats him, then he wants to go on a ‘revenge tour’ to take out some of the fighters who have beaten him. Then after that, he hopes a title shot will be in his grasps.
Here’s what he had to say:
“For myself, personally, as long as I’m still competitive, I want to fight. My goal is to fight for the championship and fight for the UFC belt. I just need the opportunity to actually fight for the belt. After the Josh fight, I just think I’m going to go on a revenge tour and just go after all my losses and then try to get the belt.”
