Roy Nelson wore a fat suit to Friday's UFC 137 weigh-ins because fans shouldn't get to see half-naked people for free.

After a much-needed victory that sent MMA legend Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic into retirement, Nelson shaved his Grizzly Adams beard and trimmed a nest of hair so people like me would have something to write about.

In other words, Roy Nelson (16-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) hasn't changed a bit.

"The Ultimate Fighter 10" winner, who had suffered back-to-back losses (and was one more away from receiving his UFC walking papers), staved off the termination with a third-round TKO victory over Filipovic (27-10-2 MMA, 4-6 UFC). The bout was part of the pay-per-view main card of UFC 137, which took place at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center.

A quote from the Article


How did you lose the weight?

"Secrete ninja training," he said.

And that since-clipped pony tail that had the appeal of a dead squirrel's tail?

"That was my Steven Seagal ponytail," he said.



Nelson is in my books. Very impressed with him last night.

He learned how to put on stomach mass from Steven Seagal...

You have to put it on the right way after all...

i cant help but think that roy is far from success in the ufc after that fight. he wasnt very impressive, although he looked better than his last fight, and we all knew that this was probably gonna be crocop's last fight. roy needs to do something drastic like LHW division or something.

I agree in that I dod not think Big country looked great and has work to do if he wants to figure in the division. This was an easy fight IMO that Joe chucked him to get back on track. I like him but his stand up is very untidy and sluggish IMO and for me we did not learn anything new about him in this fight.
