UFC president Dana White, UFC ringside commentator Joe Rogan and fans across the world have been clamoring for UFC heavyweight fighter Roy Nelson to put down the cheeseburgers and start cutting the fat so that he may compete at his full potential.

He currently resides in the upper-middle tier of the heavyweight pack, but his over sized frame hinders him from what “could be.”

Roy Nelson has now jumped on board a possible move to the UFC’s light-heavyweight division, but only if certain conditions are met.

Here is what he had to say via

“The reason is my friend and I had a discussion about what was better? I think twitter just because of use and for fans interaction, but Facebook is 20x bigger. So we decided to bet. I said if it so easy and great I should be able add 100K fans in 2 weeks because I have that on twitter. Facebook is bigger and better so this should be easy. Right?

Bet is I will try to get to 205 if I can add 100k to in two weeks. I love to win bets. Plus he will have to give me a part in his next movie.”

So, there you have it! Wanna see the big man make a run at 205 than head on over to facebook and like his fan page ASAP. Let’s get it done Penn Nation!
