Big Country, Big Power, Big Oppurtunity

 While Nelson is relaxing this week after a devastating KO over Dutch sky scraper Stefan Struve in 0:39 of the 1st round at UFN 21. Roy is aware that he is set up for another step up the ladder of Heavyweights and recognizes that there is still work ahead.

“I don’t really make those choices,” Nelson told MMA Weekly Radio about his next opponent. “I was saying I’d rather be fighting for the belt and be done with it. It’s the UFC and there’s so many great guys, there’s so many great fights to match up with.”

Currently the buzz for Big Country points right to Brazilian and fellow Knockout artist Junior dos Santos.

 ”I’d love it,” Nelson said about a fight with the Brazilian. “I think Dos Santos deserves (a title shot) over Cain (Velasquez) just cause he’s whipped some better competition. I mean his very first fight was (Fabricio) Werdum. He’s beat up some really good guys. I think he definitely deserves a good chance or a good stab at it.”

One thing you can count on with Roy “Big Country” Nelson is that no matter who is places in front of him, he will embrace the challenge and jump at the oppurtunity….

…and then go eat a cheeseburger….or ten.
