Roy Nelson Management Not Interested In Cormier Booking

Following last weekend’s UFC 159 event, UFC President, Dana White announced that Roy Nelson will likely get a fight against Mark Hunt or Daniel Cormier.

Hunt is set up on a collision course with JDS and Cormier is coming off his UFC debut win over Frank Mir.

“Hey @danawhite ur right,” tweeted Cormier, shortly after White’s announcement. “I think Roy Nelson and I would be a damn good fight. How about it @roynelsonmma.”

However, as reported on last night’s UFC Tonight on FUEL TV, Mike Kogan, the manager of Roy Nelson said he will advise his client against a bout with Cormier, siting that “Big Country” has nothing to gain from the matchup. He would like Roy to face either Antonio Silva, JDS or the aforementioned Mark Hunt.

After the report Roy Nelson responded:

“@arielhelwani you should always come to the horse,
” tweeted Nelson. “If I have to go through DC to get my belt! I will. @mikekogan”

Currently the TUF 10 champion is riding a three-fight winning streak with all three-wins coming way of punches in the first round.
