Dana does not like Roy Nelson

http://www.ufc.com/

Dont know how to imbed videos, but if you watch the weekly wrap from the Kimbo/Nelson video around five minutes and thirty seconds, you can really get the impression that Dana White does not like Roy Nelson at all.

Sorry, i guess this should have gone in the TUF forum. My bad.

Nelson isn't a very marketable guy. I'm really growing fond of him from the show though, at first I didn't like him, but he knows what he's talking about and doesn't sugar coat anything he says. Dana, on the other hand, is just a business man and is full of shit.

Dana keeps acting like a whore because Roy Nelson beat up his newest cash cow / posterboy, Kimbo Slice. Even the TUF producer was pissed. Roy isn't a very marketable guy (but he's a good fighter) and Dana is a businessman who is just about the money.

Yeah well I think we all knew he didnt like Nelson after that fight, we didnt have to hear him say it. I'm pretty sure it was the whopper part that got him pissed

You know, I took that as Roy making fun of himself.

I don't have any idea why Dana should have been so pissed off by that.

Hai, I know you're new, but I lurve you. Dana is ALL ABOUT RATINGS.......no matter what, he says whatever the **** that will please the audience. He was a great dude at one point but at this point, he's just a ******* money whore (and I can't blame him). But Nelson is so ******* talented, maybe not marketable because he's a lard ass, but still, you can't take away from his skills because of that, even it would make sense to add more. Either way, what I'm trying to say is....**** whatever Dana says, he ******* talks out of his ass all the time....LITERALLY, ALL THE ******* TIME!

I wouldnt say roy is that talented.....he just made a really crappy fighter ( kimbo ) look crappy.

Can you imagine roy in the UFC HW division? I mean seriously with kongo, dos santos, cain, mir, lesnar, carwin, nog, gonz

I don't see him having a chance against any of those guys.

Dana is like a real life troll. He's one of those laid back jokers in high school who will say anything insane or stupid to get people either loving him or hating him. lol.

I'd say Roy would beat Kongo, Santos, Mir and Gonzaga.

I get it, he doesn't look great, but he was beating Andre Arlovski before the ref stood up in a bullshit call.

Man, you know the deal, holy shit. Yup, Dana will do anything...he's one of them dudes that nobody really liked, but he has money and can put up a good front, so people like him.
