UFC president Dana White recently sat down with Yahoo Sports to do an interview regarding the new season of The Ultimate Fighter, which debuts tonight at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on FX. In the interview he basically skewers TUF coach Roy Nelson, who is clearly not his best friend. Yesterday, Nelson compared their relationship to a husband and wife. Dana's retort was pointed:

"Everything that comes out of this guy's mouth is just asinine. I'm worried that at the end of the season, people are going to want to see me fight Roy Nelson and instead of Shane Carwin."

He's apparently not the only guy that dislikes Big Country though. Opposing coach Carwin isn't a fan either.

"Shane hates him so bad."
...
"Shane said at the end of the coaches challenge 'I've never wanted to kick somebody's ass as much as I want to kick Roy Nelson's."

Dana then expanded on his feelings for Nelson, and didn't hold back:

"I don't hate Roy, I don't hate him. He's just annoying. Everything he says makes no sense. He's like a conspiracy theorist. He's the ultimate underacheiver. Come in and sit in my office and bitch, 'I want more sponsors.' Really? You've got a mullet down to the middle of your back. You got a santa claus beard that comes down to here. And what pops out from under the beard is this massive roll. What company wants to throw their logo on that? You know what I mean? Cut the beard. Cut the mullet. It's 2012 by the way. Cut the mullet, and take your career a little seriously."

You can catch the whole video after the jump, where Dana goes off on him even more. The dynamic between White and Nelson might make tonight's TUF 16 two-hour premiere worth tuning in for.
