Roy Nelson Will Drop To Light-Heavyweight If Fan Challenge Accepted

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!

    His page is already blowing up! lol

  2. ramv says:

    Should be easy. If Nelson was fit and just muscle, with that iron chin, he could be a serious contender. Would love to see him beat Jon Jones. Of course that’s just me dreaming aloud.

  3. derrick says:

    he’s getting about 3 likes per second

  4. dante080 says:

    With his chin, ko power, high level bjj, he could be a upper level LHW. Could he beat Jon Jones. Doubtful, but it would be fun to watch.

  5. Mr.Rusk says:

    Nelson would absolutely run thru most of the lhw contenders

  6. phatty says:

    Sad he needs this kind of motivation, but good for him.

  7. Untitled says:

    Everybody go like!! Even if you are not a Nelson fan but want to see how he would compete as a LHW! Big Country FTW

  8. Rick Whitney says:

    lol roy nelson with a sixpack? lol that would be some shit wouldnt it

  9. R.I.P Big Guy says:

    But he won’t be Big Country anymore. :'(

  10. I thought not getting you ass kicked would be motivation enough

  11. David says:

  12. Sweet game plan says:

  13. mrkymrk says:

  14. chris says:

    well its jumped almost 10k in a little over an hour

  15. James Dubya says:

    Roy would smash everyone at light heavyweight… the dominance would be so awesome. Jon Jones would get crippled.

  16. m says:

  17. DerpaDerp says:

  18. DerpaDerp says:

  19. ricardo says:

    Roy “Fun Size” Nelson

  20. ty says:

    dumb how he wont just fucking do it what if jon jones said im not gonna fight evans unless i get x amount of likes stupid

  21. irvin says:

    he wil become fit country lmao

  22. yoandris says:

    Good for u

  23. Beaner says:

    He would do good at LHW. JDS couldn’t knock him out and they went all 3, Nog hit him with alot of vicious knees and still couldn’t knock him out. His cardio is excellent for a big guy when he’s not sick. If he took everything seriously he has alot of potential. We know reach isn’t a big issue for him due to the fact he fought Struve and KO’ed him.

  24. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Losing weight is tough! Hire a nutritionists and get a weight loss coach or get gastric bypass surgery. I’m gonna like his page but I would rather him just stay at HW.

  25. Dick Diaz says:

    lol i already liked that page before this.

  26. Chandler says:

    I liked the page as soon as i read this. I want to see Roy in the light heavyweight division. I think he could do some damage.

  27. peeeeeeeeeep says:

    it sounds like theres alot of people get on here an tlk shit, an kno nothing about mma, stfu an get in the cage an see wats up

  28. EatShitBum says:

    I would be impressed more by BJ if he could last more than 1 round without needing a cheeseburger.

  29. hahahanninen says:

    hes definitely talking about going to Strikeforce, retards.. obviously he’s referring to the grudge match between him and the light heavy heavy King MO.. which is actually a very interesting match-up.
