Pre fight audio with IFL light heavyweight champion Roy “Big Country” Nelson


I had the opportunity to speak with the International Fight League light heavyweight champion Roy “Big Country” Nelson. Roy will defend his title against Brad Imes this Friday at the Mohegan Sun Arena ; the fight will air live on HDNet.

Roy talked about training for a late replacement in Imes, the desire to fight top 10 heavyweights like Fedor Emelianenko and Josh Barnett, and the IFL’s new six-sided ring, “The Hex”.
