Roy Nelson would love Junior dos Santos or James Toney

“The Ultimate Fighter 10” heavyweight winner, Roy Nelson reveales he’d love to fight Brazilian, Junior dos Santos, as well as a fight with James Toney could help his case.

Nelson, speaking to MMAWeekly.com about what’s next, said:

“I don’t really make those choices. I was saying I’d rather be fighting for the belt and be done with it. It’s the UFC and there’s so many great guys, there’s so many great fights to match up with.”

Nelson on a fight vs. Junior dos Santos, said:

“I’d love it. I think Dos Santos deserves (a title shot) over Cain (Velasquez) just cause he’s whipped some better competition. I mean his very first fight was (Fabricio) Werdum. He’s beat up some really good guys. I think he definitely deserves a good chance or a good stab at it.”

Nelson on a fight vs. James Toney, said:

“It would be bigger for PR. Technically we’re just playing for PR, we’re not fighting for money, we’re fighting for PR. So then I guess James Toney would be the better fight.”

“I know I won’t get Shane (Carwin) or Brock (Lesnar), they’re supposed to be fighting in July. Cheick Kongo is just coming off his win over Paul Buentello, so he’s out in the wind. Then you’ve got Dos Santos, he’s still out in the wind. You’ve got Velasquez still out in the wind.”
