Roy Nelson Calls Out winner Of Kongo vs. Noguiera Fight | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
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 ?

    Roy should be aiming higher then big nog an Kongo he would destroy the pair of them I am a big big fan of big country an I would love to see him move to 205 he would be some force there if not Roy vs Mir 2 think Roy could win that fight then take on jds again or Cain

    • Dante Niro says:

      haha aiming higher?? both are a big step up from ed herman .. and no way in hell is big country ready for cain or jds
      and i like big country 😉

      • Dante Niro says:

        Dave* Herman (mybad)

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        You know he went the distance with JDS right?!? I’d rather see a slugfest with Hunt but Kongo or Big Nog would also be a good match up with the winner facing Mir.

        Werdum/Cain/Overoid are the next best HW’s after JDS and I don’t see any of the others in the division challenging these guys.

    • Reality says:

      That’s not low aiming. Each top guy he has fought dominated him. Big Nog and Kongo would be bigger wins for him if he won. I don’t think he’d beat Big nog but he could possibly catch Kongo with one of those overhands..Kongo could also catch him. Interesting fights on paper though.

  2. Anthony says:

    I say let him fight Hunt and lets see how tough that big head of his is.

  3. ThaGreenBandit says:

    uh, my bad. Sorry for the double post

  4. grayloc664 says:

    Big nog is going to kill Kongo. If Roy was smart he would fight someone his own speed he would have no chance against the legend. It is a joke I think Roy fights with a lot of heart but big nog is way out of his range

  5. Jason says:

    Big country vs a pile of cheeseburgers.

  6. Domokid says:

    Lol! Good one Jason

  7. Paul lfc says:

    Roy would destroy big nog I say Roy vs hunt would be a great fight an as for Kongo he would destroy him in a round but agree anyone is a step up from Herman

  8. Train the trainer says:

    JDS could not finish Big Country baby becasue theres more to him that his amazing body!!

  9. Hilo Mike says:

    I love Big Fat Roy, but WTF, did no-one see the Werdum fight? And I’ll take Big Nog any day over Roy, all week long. I say BJ bulks up more and fights Roy…

  10. Jb says:

    Anyone who thinks BC can’t hang with big nog, knows shit about mma or Roy’s resume. More trolls….Jesus
