    Roy Nelson is invincible on da streetz

    So I was just randomly checking BE, when I came across an interview with Roy Nelson. Nothing special except for this tidbit:



    Opinions on guys turning down fights


    I think what it is, is that fighters have become business people. I actually love what I'm doing. When you're a business person, sometimes you think of it as 'Ah, it's work.' I love what I do, but then on the other end, some guys do this as a living. I don't care if I win or lose, I know I'm going to give 110% and I'm going to hold my head high at the end of the day. In a street fight, I know I'd whoop everybody, because it would be that kind of "crazy rules" fight. I know at the end of the day, I'd win every fight.





    Now just wait a damn minute. That's a "street vs sport" statement.

    Is this how he justifies his low-end gatekeeper status in the division? Is this how justifies his unprofessional training regimen (in general, not just his weight)?


    This is a nice example of how a professional fighter can still bullshit himself like that, even after all that alive training and competition.

    Wow. I am at a loss for words on Roy's statement. Does he really think a beer gut and shitty conditioning would enable him to beat JDS if they ever fought again?

    I think he may be able to beat JFS in a parking lot.

    ive seen a lot of profighters say some really, really dumb **** when it comes to fighting. Dan Henderson comes to mind, ive seen him comment on a few fights before. i hope that guy never becomes a judge of anything.

    Roy Nelson vs Steven Seagal, back alley, no witnesses ('cept roy's camera phone)

    Back Alley: Battle of the Beer Bellies
    FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.
