Roy Nelson: I Just Got Outpointed by Daniel Cormier, I Want a Rematch

The UFC should go back and rename UFC 166 as "The Night of Denial."

It started when Junior Dos Santos, clearly still suffering from the beating he received from Cain Velasquez, claimed Velasquez wasn't the better fighter.

Now, it's continuing with Roy Nelson.

Big Country spoke with FightHub TV about the fight and believes he was simply outpointed by his UFC 166 opponent, Daniel Cormier.

I just got out pointed. It's nothing against Daniel. You know, Daniel (had an) excellent game plan. Played it to a T. I just wish I had two more rounds. That's about it. Daniel won that night, he was the better guy. I'd definitely like to do a rematch. I'd fight anybody that I ever lost to.

I'm not sure how Nelson wants to classify his UFC 166 loss as being simply being outpointed. Cormier beat Nelson in every facet of MMA. He beat him on the feet, beat him on the mat and beat him in every area in between.

Also, almost as comical, is the fact that Nelson wanted two more rounds of fighting. I must've missed the part where Nelson was a cardio machine or wins fights that go beyond the first round.

If there were two more rounds, it would've been 10 more minutes of watching a one-sided fight, something nobody wants to be a part of.

Nelson has only one weapon and that's his overhand right. The chances of him landing it get increasingly slimmer as the seconds tick by, and it was clear DC wasn't going to fall into his trap.

Yes, Nelson didn't end up a bloody mess, but it's pretty clear Cormier won the fight inside the Octagon at UFC 166.
