UFC Boss Laughs Off Roy Nelson For Executive Director Position

UFC Boss Laughs Off Roy Nelson For Executive Director Position

UFC president Dana White isn’t too kind when it comes to describing his thoughts on UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson to the media.

During a recent press luncheon, White was asked about Nelson applying for the executive director position with the Nevada Athletic Commission. The position was vacated earlier this month by Keith Kizer.

“What a (expletive) moron,” White said. “Let me tell you….if he puts in an application at (expletive) Kinko’s, he isn’t getting (a) job.”

White and Nelson have had several battles since “Big Country” earned his UFC contract by winning The Ultimate Fighter. The boss has been critical of Nelson’s weight and approach to fighting.

As for who might actually replace Kizer – assuming Nelson doesn’t get the job – White has no idea, saying, “I’ve got nothing.”

Nelson, 37 years old, was born and raised in Las Vegas. He is coming off back-to-back decision losses to Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. He is 6-5 in 11 UFC appearances.
