Ahead Of UFC Fight Night 52 Fight Against Mark Hunt, Roy Nelson Says He Is Ready For A Title Shot


Ahead of his match this weekend at UFC Fight Night 52 in Japan against Mark Hunt, Roy Nelson appears to be looking ahead and wants to enter the UFC’s heavyweight title picture.

“This is one of those fan-friendly fights,” Nelson says. “The only thing that’s going to be more epic than Roy Nelson fighting Mark Hunt is Roy Nelson fighting for the belt. Those are two fights that I know fans want to see.”

The one thing about the heavyweight division, or actually just being in the UFC, anybody can win and anybody can lose,” he says. “You’re competing with the best in the world. It’s like watching a football game. You can go 16-0 in football and then lose the Super Bowl.”

It is interesting to note that Nelson has never fought for the title while under UFC contract.
