My man Mr. Roy “Big Country” Nelson
I feel like people don’t give this guy enough credit. He is never going to be a champion in the UFC, even though he has come close. Roy is my favorite guy to root for and I get a lot of shit for it. How can you not root for this guy? The belly and hair alone scream this guy should be fighting at strip club events.
Roy Nelson kind of splashed on the scene on the Ultimate Fighter but before that he was already a vet. He had fought in IFL and became a champion. In 2003 Roy took home a championship in Grapplers Quest and made quarterfinals in the ADCC.
I know he has a terrible record in the UFC and he probly should retire being 40 but I’d like to see him give me a few more.
