EXCLUSIVE | Roy Nelson on Everything part 1 (Must Read) | UFC NEWS

Roy Nelson recently spoke to BJPenn.com and the results were epic. He touched on just about every topic possible and we were more than willing to listen.

On how he’s feeling after his KO victory over Dave Herman at UFC 146:

“Ready to fight again. My training camp was a lot harder. It made the win that much sweeter”.

On when he would like to fight again:

“It all depends. Next week – probably not. Maybe two weeks”.

On who he would like to fight next:

“Who do I think is going to be next. I’d put Mark Hunt say in front of like Travis Browne. Travis has an opponent already. I would like the winner of Cheick Kongo and Big Nog. That would be a fun fight for me. Fighters in the UFC are supposed to be the best in the world. So yeah anybody”.

On Brock Lesnar possibly returning to the UFC:

“I would fight Brock no problem. I would love to be the one to welcome him back. I didn’t even know he was at UFC 146. If I did I would have taken the mic a little bit further. I would have done a real Chael Sonnen”.

On a title shot:

“Apparently, sometimes you can be 1-1 and get a title shot. So yeah I’ll fight anyone”.

On the WWE:

“Yeah, I’d definitely go to the WWE. As long as I can get the okay from the UFC. I have to get more definition of what independent contractor means. From my schooling that I have I know what independent means. I think I would have to get more definition from the UFC. I think every kid wanted to be a pro wrestler like Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, or Big Van Vader. It was a big part of the 80’s and 90’s for our culture. It’s one of those dreams that if it happens it happens”.

On the changes he’s felt since getting in better shape:

“Probably just my hormones. When you get older your hormones change and you have to get on some type of therapy or something”.

On TRT:

“TRT is allowed in MMA so I can’t really speak on that. I CAN talk about the people who abuse it. It’s always good to know who’s actually on it and who’s not. There are probably a lot of them”.

On Alistair Overeem:

“I’ll say this. I would tell the athletic commission not to mix his pee up with mine”.

  1. Pete says:

    Overeem would wreck Nelson. TRT abuse or not

    • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

      OFF TOPC: Fitch pulled out of his upcoming fight with aaron Simpson. smart move no way Fitch would’ve been able to “FITCH” a much much better wrestler/athlete in Simpson. No doubt that fight would have left Fitch without a win in his last 3 fights

  2. jake says:

    Big country would smother overeem with his big belly.

  3. Cmoney says:

    Nelson is a funny dude ya. Overeem by murder

  4. Donnybrook says:

    You gotta love “Big County” always’ speaking the truth.

  5. Clay says:

    Nelson’s my nigga. He’s alot better than people give him credit for. Who else has gone the disdance w jds?

    • John says:

      The 85 year old mirco cro cop went the distance with JDS in probably one of the worst fights I’ve ever seen. Nelsons the best of the worst, when he fights top competition, there’s no competition. Maybe he should cut the weight. No heavyweight title in his future.

      • Mike cannon jr says:

        Spoken like a real expert …. Laptop warrior….. Just for the record… Having balls…. Doesn’t mean on your chin….. Bitch

      • Mike says:

        Mirko never went the distance dumby. Only Roy and carwin did and they got the shit beat out of them

      • jonesy says:

        Cro Cop had to quit in the 3rd round because he could no longer see from absorbing so many blows from JDS. So no it didtn go the distance.

    • Anti-Zuffa says:

      People are retarded, too many bandwagon jumpers that don’t actually know jack about the sport. Roy has been a top 5 heavyweight grappler in the world since the late 90’s.

      • jbeamazing says:

        yup

      • Clay says:

        Unlike you I knew about Roy Nelson before he was on ultimate fighter and they told u he won jujitsu competitions not grappling. Bandwagon that bitch

      • Rodriguez says:

        Only due to his belly! Face it, his stand-up isn’t near close to perfect and his jui-jitsu wouldn’t compete with Mir’s or Big Nog’s. Yes, he just won by knock out, but give him someone good. And don’t say cro-cop ypu asses cause he was a Pride hasbeen when he joined the UFC. He was 4-6!

    • Derpedy Derp says:

      shane carwin

    • Mike cannon jr says:

      Think he should get a rematch with jds… Over Cain…. Based on their performances against jds….

  6. T.Daddy says:

    Brock or Reem wud destroy Big country… Yeah he went the distance wit JDS but he got the shit kicked outta himself

  7. Jason says:

    Big country vs brock in the wwe

  8. Dude says:

    Yeah having a fantastic chin doesn’t really mean he is top level. Honestly, has everyone forgotten idk WERDUM!! He honestly wrecked him worse than JDS did who also put on a great striking clinic. People be serious, I love Roy, lots of talent but he hasn’t beat anybody top level, He had a strong streak of finishes of on mediocre opponents. As soon as they gave him JDS, he couldn’t hang. Then WERDUM who just had a tittle fight against the reem, again he couldn’t last. Of course he looked awesome against herman, who lost to Struve. Roy needs to get away from the tank Abbott mentality of brawling and get in shape and then hell be a force to reckon with, until then hell just be another butterbean, knocking out people for show.

  9. Brend0magic says:

    Hate how it says (must read), I’d only put that on articles that take more than 1 minute to get through.

  10. jbeamazing says:

    I never herd someone brag about not getting finished so much jds did kick his ass but I do got love for the fat one

  11. T.Daddy says:

    Big country needs to do some sit ups..lol

  12. diehard ufcer says:

    Roy nelson is too slow for savages of standup like overeem or jds. If he lost little weight n got quicker might be different story

  13. #1 Haole says:

    If he could get to 205. I don’t see many knocking him out. And maybe he could actually use his jujitsu.
