Posted by Larry Csonka on 10.17.2013
- Roy Nelson recently spoke about his weight loss, poor camp and more. Here are the highlights…
On His Weight Loss: "That's what happens when you get depressed. When I get depressed, I don't eat."
On His Camp: "This has actually probably been the crappiest camp I've ever had, so it is what it is. "I still had some of my core guys, but I lost (Muhammed) Lawal," Nelson said. "I lost Ryan Martinez. ... He broke his hand. It was one of those camps where anything that possibly could've happened, happened. You just deal with it. I've been in the game long enough to know what I'm supposed to do and put the work in."
On Considering Pulling Out of the Fight: "That's how other fighters work," he said. "All the other fighters are like, ‘Oh, my big toe hurts.' They worry about all that other stuff. People want to pay to see me fight, and I'm going to put on a show. The UFC, that's what they expect of me, to put on a show and ... fight. I come to fight every time."
