"He's a pain in the ass. He was a pain in the ass when he was on the show as a contestant, he's a pain in the ass since he's been in the UFC and he's a huge pain in the ass now that he's on the show.I knew it was gonna happen. I butt heads with this guy nonstop. He's a pain in the ass. It's the only way I can explain the guy. The first day we start filming, he starts shooting his mouth off and saying dumb shit. You'll see."

I get this feeling that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White thinks Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Champion-turned-coach Roy Nelson is a pain in the ass. "Big Country" is ruffling feathers as filming gets underway for season 16, where he preps a group of mixed martial arts (MMA) up-and-comers for life inside the Octagon. Opposing him is fellow 265-pound slugger Shane Carwin, who traded verbal barbs with the burger king on Twitter before signing on to trade leather later this year. Any fight fans plan on tuning in just to see how much trouble Nelson can cause?
