I hope someday a part of my anatomy can get 17 thousand hits on Google like Roy.

Roy Nelson is so hungry...

... when he goes on the road he pre-coordinates his eating destinations with Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (Actually true- not joking!). He likes to get in at least three locations per city.

You know why I love Big Roy, cause as long as he's in the UFC I can honestly say I have the physique of an Ultimate Fighter

I hope big country KTFO s 2saints , you know, for america. Being a 4th generation montanan who's spent way too much time drinking in shitty places I've seen plenty of guys with nelson's build and mullet, who are older than him , one shot college athletes with excellent cardio, chiseled physiques, and douchebag nicknames minus the alcohol and underage girls this should end the same way.

Dana has tried like hell to get rid of Big Tummy. If JDS can't skewer him then he could... go... all... the... way!

Roy Nelson is so sexy, he's too sexy for your party. No way he's disco dancing!

Roy Nelson is gestating a baby elephant, it is angry and quite aggressive. I've heard if you ask him nicely he'll obligingly show you the trunk.

Dos Santos - receding hairline
Nelson - Sweet curly mullet
Advantage: Nelson

Sorry Two Saints, but I got a BK A1 Steakhouse Xt on Nelson.

Two Saints won't be able to fight when hes rendered useless by Nelsons C cups.

War Nelson! Have to rally for the fat boy HWs...
FightZen- August 2, 2010 at 3:33 pm
Getting called a jackass by DW is a win in my book...

Who would have thought this fight would be decided by number of Facebook friends? Well, better log on to Bodog and place some money on the underdog. You can't argue with the numbers.

CORRECTION! Big Country's biggest win came against Kimbo, dog. Says Gus "I Roll Dog"Johnson..

Roy Nelson's so sexy Akiyama gasses out just looking at him.

Roy Nelson's so sexy the ring girls are jealous of him.
Almost North- August 2, 2010 at 2:47 pm
I don't want to look at either

Roy Nelson's belly has nothing on Jake Sheilds' boring....
Almost North- August 2, 2010 at 2:36 pm
Head to Belly
ghostboner- August 2, 2010 at 2:32 pm
Oh come on. He had been smothering him in side control for like 3 minutes. he was never gonna get that stupid Kimura. The round would have expired and then Nelson would have been ko'd in the next round.
