LAS VEGAS – For whatever reason, Roy Nelson’s fight against Fabricio Werdum at UFC 143 isn’t getting much attention, whether it be a lack of interest or a lack of promotion.
Regardless, Nelson knows how important this fight is. It’s not the fact that he’s welcoming Werdum back to the UFC; it’s the fact that this fight positions the winner as one of the top contenders to the belt current held by UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
“It’s definitely one of those big game changers,” said Nelson, who believes he’s got a tough task on his hands come Saturday night.
“He’s definitely, the older he’s gotten, he’s gotten better, so I’m getting the best Fabricio out there.”
But best Werdum or not, Nelson knows that magic formula to winning, “You punch a guy more in the face, you’re definitely going to win.”
