Roy Nelson comments to Sherdog.
In his last bout Nelson breezed through Dave Herman at UFC 146 on May 26, 2012, with a 51-second knockout. The win got him back on track after his defeat to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 143, after the bout Nelson even contemplated moving down to 205.
Fresh off his victory over Herman in Vegas Nelson says he wouldn’t mind getting back into the mix of things as long as it’s a “money” fight. He already has a few fighters in mind.
“I just want a money fight. But if not, I’ve always wanted to fight [Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira]. I’ll take the winner out of Big Nog and Cheick Kongo. I’d love that fight. Of course JDS, Frank [Mir]. There’s so many out there. I’ll even take the little black guy on the UFC roster where it says TBA. Because if you’re in the UFC, you’re the best in the world. You can fight that guy and be the next title contender. Brock did it.”
Kongo and Nogueira both coming off losses are set to face off at UFC 149 on July 21, 2012, in Calgary. Alberta, Canada.
What do you think about Nelson getting the winner of Kongo vs. Nogueira is that a fight you would like to see ?
