He's hoping for a shot...
Roy Nelson spoke on Friday about his won over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 39. Check out the highlights:
On the knockout win: "Every time I fight, I always try to make a statement. I always try to give the fans what they want to see."
On Nogueira: "The thing with ‘Big Nog' is you can't just jump right on him. I tried to get a TKO, but he recovers. He actually knows where he's at, even when he's kind of out. The only way I knew was I either had to put him out by choking him or knock him out."
On his performance: "It was a little bit shorter than I thought it was going to be. Since we're here in Abu Dhabi, I wanted to grapple a little bit more. I wanted to do a couple more takedowns – or actually do a takedown – but it didn't last that long."
On who he wants to face: "Dream opponent is always whoever has the belt, so that would be Cain Velasquez."
