Roy “Big Country” Nelson needs to eat!

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 winner, Roy Nelson talks to Fighter’s Only about his upcoming fight with Stefan Struve at UFC Fight Night 21 on March 31st, 2010.

“[Struve] is a great kid with a great record, 22-3 and he is 3-1 in the UFC. But I think our paths may have crossed a little early for him. He is a young kid, 21, I know he has a lot to look forward to … I think its definitely going to be a ‘different’ fight. You’ve got a 6′ 11″ guy against a 5′ 5″ guy, tall and slinky against short in stature. I think I am a little bit better in some aspects. I think my experience… actually I cant even say that, he has more fights than I do, haha! I think it will just come down to who wants it more. He is young hungry kid and I am a hungry old kid. I need to eat. I take every fight seriously, even my fight with Kimbo I took serious. You have to go in there and have a good gameplan and keep your head. One of the things I always do is take everyone serious because [MMA] is like football, any given Sunday any team can win.”
