“I wonder if Lorenzo [Fertitta] is going to call Cro Cop to see if he wants to fight, he is [a] legend and has done some great things, would love the challenge, but as everybody knows I just like to fight the best and the challenges that it brings.”
Roy Nelson was scheduled to meet Shane Carwin at UFC 125, but Carwin pulled out with neck and back injuries. One fighter who doesn't seem to mind facing "Big Country" is Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipovic. The Croatian recently said, he doesn't mind being Carwin's replacement at UFC 125. Apparently, The Ultimate Fighter season 10 winner doesn't mind hooking up with the Pride 2006 Grand Prix winner either (via Fighters Only). If this fight does indeed go down, who do you have? Nelson or Cro Cop?
