Roy Nelson plans on fighting in 2011 despite contract confusion

TUF 10 heavyweight winner, Roy Nelson has revealed he plans on fighting next year with the UFC despite an ongoing situation regarding a contract he has with Roy Jones Jr.’s promotion, Square Ring Promotions.

Nelson, speaking via MMAFighting.com, Nelson said:

“As far as I know, I’m fighting in 2011. That’s my plan.”

“I guess from a lawyer’s stand point or even a jury’s stand point, I think it’s kind of hard to say if you have any claims if you’ve never put on another MMA event ever in your whole entire life that I know of.”

“I think they wanted it’s the UFC and there’s no rhyme or reason with stuff, usually. It’s a bigger way to roll in WEC into the UFC. It’s a good way to start showcasing like Jose Aldo and trying to capitalize off like a Urijah Faber, the little guys. At the same time I look as a plus that my knee got better faster and I’ll be ready anywhere in 2011.”
