UFC 143: Diaz v Condit - Press Conference

“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 manager, 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.”

In an interview with BloodyElbow, top UFC heavyweight fighter, Roy “Big Country” Nelson, weighed in on a potential showdown with Daniel Cormier.
