NEWARK, NJ -- Next time out will be a big fight for "Big Country."

After notching his third straight first-round knockout, Roy Nelson will be matched up with either Daniel Cormier or Mark Hunt, UFC president Dana White said after UFC 159.

Country could submit and ground and pound Hunt any time he felt like, probably a horrible fight for Hunt

At least against Hunt he'd have a chance. I can't see Nelson beating Cormier.

I can. Any time you hit that hard you have a chance

actually dana said at the post-fight conference he'd like to set up roy vs hunt if hunt beat JDS and or cormier. I guess that title shot for hunt could have to wait. but cormier already accepted the fight with roy via twitter

I like both match ups...no easy routes in the UFC for a title shot, unless your (P)erfect.
