Dana White brands Roy Nelson a 'f***ing moron' for applying for vacant NSAC executive director position

According to Dana White, don't expect to see Roy "Big Country" Nelson heading the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) any time soon ... or making photocopies for you at Kinkos for that matter.

In a development even a blindfolded mole could have seen coming miles away, it turns out Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White isn't "happy" to learn that Roy Nelson decided to apply for the now-vacant position of Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) executive director.

White -- who in the past quipped that "Big Country" was "no genius" -- didn't hold back in his criticism of the portly, mullet-adorned facial hair enthusiast when asked about the Heavyweight veteran's recent attempt to land a mixed martial arts (MMA) side gig.

He unloads (via

"What a f*cking moron.... Let me tell you what, if he puts in an application at f*cking Kinko's, he isn't getting that job. Let alone the Nevada State Athletic Commission."

As of press time, attempts to reach the night shift manager at the nearest FedEx/Kinkos for comment have proven unfruitful, but I'm sure "Big Country" would have no trouble landing a role at the popular copy shop if he agreed to shave off the tumbleweed attached to his face (and possibly tie his prodigious locks back in a business casual ponytail).

As for his bid to replace former NSAC head honcho Kieth Kizer, don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen.

But, if through some rift in the space time continuum we slipped into a Bizarro World where men who look like itinerant muskrat trappers can be appointed to a prominent role in local government despite no prior bureaucratic experience, expect White's head to explode in frustration.

If you thought White's epic rants about Kizer were something (read his most recent here), just imagine the Nelson-inspired vitriol he would spew each time UFC held an event in Nevada.

Come to think of it, "Commissioner Big Country" does have a fun ring to it.
