He will never be a contender coming in in that kind of shape.
Bring all the facts you want about Rampage being a draw , the guy is the least committed fighter employed by the UFC, Nelson is out of shape i agree but to say he isnt committed when he took 3 full rounds of beatings and the same against Dos Santos when he could have just given up to me shows that he has the desire to fight.

I could care less about Rampage actually. I really don't care for the guy, but unfortunately he has his fans and the UFC will pay him. Roy Nelson looked terrible against Junior and against Mir. He may have the desire to fight, but does he have the desire to be competitive? Watching him get pounded for the last 6 rounds he has fought has been tough. It is not good for the sport...actually, it makes a mockery of it. It is sad to see talent wasted.

Roy Nelson is a fat ******* can and he got what he deserved. The dude is the most overrated scrub in the UFC and Dana White knows this which is why his base salary is so damn low. Yes he won TUF but that was a show which featured a bunch of ex-NFL players and street brawlers who never trained MMA in their lives.
And yes he KOed Struve but everybody is doing that these days and he got absolutely worked against actual opponents like Mir and JDS. Nelson is an ugly, unskilled, fat **** who should be a middleweight so he has no right to complain about anything.

Still it's what they sign up for when they sign a contract for x number of fights. When Mighty Mouse signed up for say 3 fights he wasn't that much of a draw whilst Torres was more known and had "better" record. Zuffa are not gonna change the saleries in the middle of the contract just because he gets more famous, but for the next fights MM signs he wil def get a better contract, even if all of those new fights will end with losses he will still get paid what he signed for. Works both ways.

I don't get why people are dissing nelson? Hell him out of shape still puts on a better performance than gsp or fitch. I hate to say it but why are people not knocking Mir? Nelson was out of shape but still managed to break mir's jaw and ribs. Plus i have seen a lot of guys get paid more for not doing shit.

That's probably the reason he only makes 15k though. TUF contracts are not really the cream of the crop.

If Nelson turned up in shape he could at least have had a crack at the FOTN bonus. The Stann fight whilst good wasn't something outstanding!

The more money in Zuffa's pockets, the more money in the fighters pockets.

People should have bought the PPV.
