And he wants people to know he's not happy about it. "I think my feelings were a little hurt. I was hoping they could find somebody to replace [Carwin]. This is one of the biggest cards of the year, and I was in the co-main event, and I was really trying to make sure my knee was better. The UFC really pushed me hard to get through with my rehab so I could fight on this card. My doctors said I shouldn't fight again until February or March, but I stepped up because the UFC wanted me to. I stepped up for the UFC, and I hoped they would do the same for me. The thing is nobody wants to fight a fat guy like me. Cro Cop is a legend in this sport, and I would've loved to have fought him. I'd like to fight [Antonio Rodrigo] Nogueira for the same reason. I'd love to fight [Alistair] Overeem, Brock Lesnar or The Undertaker. [UFC President] Dana White asks people, 'So, you want to be a f---ing fighter?' I love to fight. I'm one of those guys."

Hopefully they put him on a card that is soon after 125, dont have a clue who they might match him up against. I wonder if they even tried to him a replacement opponent.

Or maybe they are not risking him as his doctors have requested? If he shouldn't fight until Feb or March, then they should do this, they don't need another fighter on the crock list.

I see this as a blessing. It is the holiday season, now Roy can eat as much as he want.

I'm pretty sure he does that anyway.

Roy is one crazy SOB. I love watching him fight. He just keeps plodding ahead, mullet and all. dos Santos was pounding him and Big Country just kept a comin'. Hopefully we will see him again soon.
