After getting 'out-pointed' at UFC 166, Roy Nelson would 'definitely' like a rematch against Daniel Cormier

Like Timmy T once said: "Can't we give it ... one more try?"

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier has abandoned his post at 265 pounds to try his luck at light heavyweight, hoping that a couple of wins over quality opponents (like this one) will get him a long-desired title fight against Jon Jones.

If he's unsuccessful and finds himself blowing back up to heavyweight, Roy Nelson (via Fight Hub TV) will be waiting.

"Back to the drawing board. I didn't feel like it was a fight, just a good sparring match. I was back in the gym on Monday. It was a crappy camp. I just got out-pointed. It's nothing against Daniel [Cormier]. Excellent gameplan, played it to a tee. I just wish I had two more rounds. Daniel won that night and he was the better guy, but I definitely would like to do a rematch. I'd fight anybody I've ever lost to."

I'm not sure the feeling is mutual.

That's because Cormier remained undefeated at the UFC 166 pay-per-view (PPV) event last month in Houston, Texas, by dominating Nelson for 15 minutes (watch it), taking advantage of "Big Country's" pre-fight woes and not letting the beard of ill repute stop him from getting it done in "The Lone Star State."

Looks like Nelson will have to turn his attention to someone else in his weight class.

But who?
