That's because "Big Country" recently took a mini-tour of Japan with Zuffa cameras following along to enjoy the ride that ultimately culminated in his eating a blowfish.

Nelson described the blowfish balls as "delicious" and seemingly plans on enjoying them again come Thanksgiving Day, something he says he can't wait for. Naturally.
All this, of course, is just fluff leading up to tonight's (Sat., Feb. 25, 2012) UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" pay-per-view event going down at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
