"Former IFL heavyweight champion and current "The Ultimate Fighter 10" cast member Roy Nelson has never been one to hide his true feelings.

And one day after his win over Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson was broadcast to the world, "Big Country" is no different.

Comfortable in his one-sided TKO win, Nelson believes he matches up just fine with everyone in the UFC's heavyweight division, is proud of the fact that he perfectly predicted his win, and thinks it's time for Slice to take a look at the UFC's 205-pound division. Oh, and then there's the suck-meter thing."

Good read I've heard Nelson be bad mouthed all day and I've siad was he proved a point, and did exactly what he said he would. The fight should have been stopped during the first, then people wouldn't complain.

The more I hear of him the more i dislike him. But I guess he could be worthy as a suck meter.

ya he's a little delusional, he lost me at "I thought I was the big surprise", the guy is good and all but come on he isn't a top ranked heavyweight even if he is highly touted.

how can he think he matches up well against Brock? That's a guy who can toss Nelson's weight around.

I though both of Rashad's guys in the first two fights looked pretty good except that the kickboxer guy needs to know when to go in for the kill. However, both of them looked like they had some skills to build off of.

I felt that Roy got screwed in the Arlovski fight. A ref should never stand someone up when in a dominant position. (Mount, Side Control, North South)

I was suprised Nelson went on TUF. Especially considering Rothwell, who lost to Nelson in the IFL, is fighting a top UFC contender next!

Rothwell won by split decision in the IFL. Rothwell is in the ufc because he has more wins over better competition and was ranked in the top ten coming out of the IFL

Did he say he wanted to be a gatekeeper?? Well i geuss being a gatekeeper in the UFC isnt a bad gig. Chris Lytle has made a hell of a career out of it!

From what was shown to us in the fight, IMO he's far from even challenging any gatekeeper who's already established in the UFC.

I was happy Arloski won that fight,but you are right.
Roy did get screwed on the standup.
