After last night's UFC 147, shortly after the over-matched Mike Russow lost to Fabricio Werdum, Nelson took to twitter to make a challenge, and even raised the stakes:


I want Mike Russow and loser goes to 205 or becomes Dana White Rich. Let make it happen @danawhite

I want Russow he eating all my food

I've always disliked Russow, the first time I watched him fight live was Pride 33 when he tapped out to Kharitonov and then tried to claim that he didn't tap. Long story short, I would love to see this fight happen because I would pick Big Country by brutal 1st round KO.

That would probably be Nelson's easiest UFC so far on paper.

I think Russow is being overvalued by the UFC, putting him against Werdum or maybe there just wasn't much out there to make a better fight at the time.

Somehow the guy was 4-0 in the UFC, that may have overvalued Russow in and of itself.

The guy was 4-0 in a shallow division. There was no choice. I consider him above average, though.

Russow beat McCully, Duffee, Madsen, Einemo and then steps up to Werdum.

How about instead of them dropping to 205, they both try and get in shape at HW.

^^ They both probably feel as if they will lose power without the extra fat. It must be comfortable.

I agree with Prozacnation. Hunt.
