Roy Nelson Says He Will Fight Cormier, But Only As A 205 Title Eliminator


“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.

  1. TheTude says:

    HAHA, is it possible for country to get down to 205?

  2. VICTOR says:

    ROY DESERVES RESPECT HES A GREAT MARTIAL
    ARTEST AND THERE AREN THAT MANY HEAVY WEIGHTS IN HIS DEVISION ,IF HE KEEPS KNOCKIN GUYS DANA HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO GIVE HIM A TITTLE SHOT!

    • Jo says:

      “Big Country” has not received the respect he deserves as a fighter. That’s kind of good in a way as it may actually fuel his desire to beat everyone to a title shot even more!

  3. There's No Way... says:

    … This big ass white boy gonna get down to 205. But if he can, that would be an interesting match… Jones vs. Nelson. Not saying he’d beat DC but that would be cool to see

  4. rhett says:

    roy said he’s been practicing combos.. so it’s no longer just one big haymaker.. if he drops down to 205 he’d be someone to watch out for.. also i heard that dana said if roy loses the belly, he’ll be granted an automatic title shot! go roy!

  5. Ddddddd says:

    I’m ashamed of myself for not believing in Roy this whole time. If he gets past a high level opponent in his next out I’ll be a longtime fan.

  6. GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" says:

    FATT Roy couldn’t make 205 if he cut off both legs. FatT roy couldn’t make 230 let alone 205. FATT Roy probably was 205 lbs in FIRST GRADE. That disgusting beard is OBVIOUSLY to try and protect his chin. No possible way Roy is anywhere close toa title shot.

  7. deez says:

    if big boy roy was able to bang with dos santos, and then got his striking game up… he could hurt dc bad. he`s also large object to move, i dont see dc hugging him on the cage.
