"You just got remember that mine and Dana White's relationship is like we're a husband and wife. I do the man's stuff around the house. I do the fighting, all the man's stuff and he does all the woman stuff - all the yapping. He's more the 21st century, he's the one who goes out and probably makes more money. Where as I might make sure the house is clean, and all that, but at the end of the day I still do the man's stuff - the lawn, the fighting, all the hard stuff. It's one of those relationships were there's love and hate. We're in one of those things like a speed bump. I don't know if we need a separation from one another. I think The Ultimate Fighter was our separation ... but now we're back together and holding hands and all that stuff."

-- Roy Nelson and Dana White have never had a perfect relationship. Hell, the UFC President called Nelson a "pain in the ass" after filming started for this most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). It all started with Nelson's actions when he was a contestant on TUF season 10 where the UFC President didn't take kindly to his dry sense of humor and attitude. Nelson was recently a guest on The MMA Hour where he talked about his strained relationship with the UFC President. Nelson will be coaching opposite fellow UFC Heavyweight Shane Carwin on The Ultimate Fighter 16 on FX debuting at 9 p.m. ET tomorrow night (Sept. 14, 2012). Will you be tuning in, Maniacs?
