Roy Nelson Says Junior Dos Santos Is Best Heavyweight In The UFC

Former IFL Heavyweight Champion and TUF winner Roy Nelson will get a chance to cement his spot in the division at UFC 117 when he faces Junior Dos Santos to see who will earn a shot at Brock Lesnar and although Lesnar is the Champ, Nelson feels he is fighting the best this weekend:

“If I could pick my way to the top, this is one of the fastest ways to do it. I wanted to fight for the belt my very first fight, so this is OK with me…. Hands down, I think he's the best guy in the UFC right now. This is my title fight, because I look at it as I think this guy can beat the guy who has the belt. I think Junior is the best…. If I didn't think I was the best in the world, I'd be fighting in another organization. I'm always the guy who wants to challenge myself.”
