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.

For give me for being slow, did you mean JDS? Or was JFS a pun that flew over my head?

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 Tank Abbot after they have a drinking contest, to see who deserves ZZ Top as walkout music?

I'm convinced nobody on the planet knows less about boxing than George Foreman.

Trust in the capacity of alive-training and competition, to disembullshit someone's views, assumes logic on the part of humans.
