    That is kinda like telling someone who hates their job to simply quit even though it pays the bills.

    There are many fights which would have earned Roy Nelson a title shot had he won, but he didn't.

    Same thing i was thinking. He is a one trick pony with a granite chin eventually that chin will give out and he'll be done. I like the guy but at this stage of his career at 37 he isn't getting any better. He'll never challenge for a title but he should provide some fun fights to watch.
    Fav Fighters: Penn, Wand, Fedor, Genki, Shields, Rashad, Pulver, Diaz bros, Melendez.

    Chael Sonnen got a title shot against Jones, and Bonnar got a shot at Anderson Silva.
    So anything can happen actually.

    But it is very unlikely, Nelson would need to beat a Top 5 fighter and that is not happening.

    BTW anyone know when Miocic is fghting next?
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    It is pretty funny that Dana White is pushing the concept of earning a title shot.

    I like Roy but yeah, he hasn't beaten anyone to merit a title shot. And I don't see him beating Cain.

    I'd be there.
