UFC Quick Quote: Roy Nelson preparing for Mirko Cro Cop left head kick by training at cemetery

via www.cdn.sherdog.com

"I've just been working out in the cemetery a lot. I've got to get ready for the left kick. I want to see what it's like. All fights are dire. I've seen guys get cut after one. I've seen guys lose three or four and still have a job. In this business, there's no rhyme or reason. It's MMA. It's like when you go into the Octagon: anything can happen."

-- Oh that Roy Nelson, he's such a jokester. Speaking to MMAFighting.com, the busty big man makes light of his upcoming heavyweight clash against Mirko Filipovic by claiming he's training at the cemetery. You know, because that's where he'll be headed if "Cro Cop" lands one of those deadly left head kicks, har har. "Big Country" may be quipping at his usual rate but the laughter will come to an abrupt end if he fails to emerge victorious this upcoming Oct. 29 at UFC 137 in Las Vegas, Nevada. That's because he will have lost three fights in a row inside the Octagon and you know what that usually means. Most guys don't get a fourth strike. He knows this is a must win situation for him but he's got a favorable match-up, as "Cro Cop" has struggled even worse than Nelson as of late. Anyone think Filipovic will ride off into the sunset with a head kick knockout that sends "Big Country" out of the UFC? Or is that just wishful thinking?
