Well folks, it looks like the fat man is here to stay. With the first fight in a brand new nine fight contract, coming from Olympic wrester Daniel Cormier on October nineteenth, UFC’s co-main event under JDS vs Cain III. It seems like Roy Nelson will be spending the rest of his career with the worlds largest MMA promotion. With brutal knockouts over the likes of Brendan Schaub, Stefan Struve, Mirko Cro Cop, Dave Herman, Matt Mitrione, and Cheick Kongo, this does not come as a surprise. Roy figures that he will spend the next five years fulfilling this contract, which he says he is relatively happy with.
After a three fight knockout spree gaining Nelson quite an amount of popularity, he was beaten in his most recent fight losing by unanimous decision to extremely underrated Stipe Miocic on June fifteenth. Nelson is next scheduled to meet Daniel Cormier in a match that most don’t think he should be involved with. Daniel Cormier is looking like a world beater from his last few fights, and Roy is coming off of a loss to a lower ranked opponent.
Roy Nelson will treat this match as a a god send. If he can manage to land that bomb of a right hand, and knock out the lights of the world class wrestler, then he could rebound from his loss and possibly be considered a contented for the title. When Roy is on any fight card, you know you’re in for a good one. Undoubtably one of the most durable fighters of all time, he is more than capable of knocking someone out on any given night.
