Roy Nelson talks Mirko Cro Cop, hints at being "lighter" for UFC 137Posted on October 24, 2011, 02:58 PM by Anton Gurevich
TUF 10 winner Roy "Big Country" Nelson discussed his upcoming bout with Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic at this weekend's UFC 137. Just like anyone else fighting the PRIDE legend, Nelson gave a lot of credit to Cro Crop, claiming that this could well be the toughest fight in his Mixed Martial Arts campaign. Big Country also hinted at being lighter for the fight with the Croat, but still refused to confirm the rumors whether he plans to revolutionize his controversial diet.
Nelson is currently 15-6 in his career, losing to Junior dos Santos and Frank Mir in his most recent bouts. Many fans believe Nelso could be on verge of being cut from the promotion, if Mirko Cro Cop manages to grab his first victory since the UFC 115 encounter with Patrick Barry.
