The UFC 150 post-fight media scrum was full of the usual repetitive questions and candor from Dana White, but one of the highlights of the Q & A was White's response to recent comments from TUF 16 coach Roy Nelson. Amongst other things, Nelson stated that Dana 'wants to be a fighter but he's not'. Dana scoffed at that, of course:
"Him saying sh*t like that goes along with what I said about the stupid sh*t that comes out of this guy's mouth. The difference is I have to hear it three days a week. When he fights randomly three times a year, I have to hear it in small spurts. Now I've got to listen to dumb sh*t three days a week."
And Dana didn't stop there:
"Do you think that going into this that I didn't think Roy Nelson was going to annoy the sh*t out of me? I mean, that's what he does – he's annoying. He's annoying, and the stuff that comes out of his mouth makes no sense. He's Roy Nelson, that's why."
While I generally like White, I find it amusing that someone like Roy Nelson of all people can get under his skin. Nelson is coaching against Shane Carwin and the two men will meet at the end of the season. I wonder who Dana will be pulling for there.
