Shortly after Nelson KOd Kongo at UFC 159, UFC newcomer Daniel Cormier called him out. However, it doesn't look like Nelson's management is keen on the idea.

I think he does.Cormier is dangerous and is a hot name at the moment. Nelson beats him and its another feather in his Championship contention cap

Cormier needs Nelson more then Nelson needs Cormier. I think Nelson can get the loser of Cain and Bigfoot or even a rematch with Dos Santos. Cormier is a good fight for him but Cormier has more to gain.

It's a lose/lose situation for Nelson IMO. If he loses, his winning streak and title hopes are down the drain, if he wins fans will just say Cormier should be at 205 anyway. I do think the match-up needs to happen, though.

Why wouldn't Nelson want this fight? Cormier is a top 5 Heavyweight if Nelson beats him convinceingly he should/would get a title shot IMO Ithink I spelled convinceingly wrong but you know what I mean not what I write

Kongo is clearly past his prime and suddenly Nelson is too good for Cormier?

I think the important fact is that Cormier is a top 5 HW, but now a top 5 HW name. From a marketing standpoint, it's all about fighting well known guys that aren't that amazing, rather than amazing guys that aren't that well known.

Right now Cormier has a more legitimate claim to a title shot than Antonio Silva (or any other HW) does. Nelson has done very well in his current win streak, but its hard to imagine him having any more luck than the previous times he was matched against top competition. So I don't know how Nelson's management makes the argument that this fight wouldn't help Roy other than silly posturing.

Oh yeah. Nelson also has very little chance against Cormier if they do fight.

I think Dana will say Cormier should be at 205 if Roy beats him. I feel that a win over Cormier gives him an insta title shot, since I think Cormier would be fighting for the title if Cain wasn't the champ after that Mir fight.

What he means is, Roy shouldn't fight DC because he'll get pounded more than my penis when I dated that punk girl!

Nope Roy probably thinks that to, he'll hang in there, he'll think it'll get easier, they can't keep that pace up for long, it must be hurting them as much as you. But eventually it'll dawn in him, they can keep that pace up, it doesn't get any easier an its not hurting them as much as it's hurting you. And just like me he'll end up having to explain to his friends why he's sat in the dark with frozen seasonal veg on his balls and exactly where all those bruses came from.
