UFC 117 Quote: Roy Nelson Says Junior dos Santos is Better than Brock Lesnar

Roy NelsonThe winner of Saturday’s UFC 117 clash between heavyweight contenders Roy Nelson and Junior dos Santos will get a shot at the heavyweight title currently held by Brock Lesnar, but Nelson sees dos Santos as the best fighter in the UFC and a tougher test than fighting Lesnar for the belt:

“If I could pick my way to the top, this is one of the fastest ways to do it,” Nelson recently told the Las Vegas Sun. “I wanted to fight for the belt my very first fight, so this is OK with me. Hands down, I think he’s the best guy in the UFC right now. This is my title fight, because I look at it as I think this guy can beat the guy who has the belt. I think Junior is the best.”

Lesnar puts the heavyweight title on the line against Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 on October 23, and the winner will then face Nelson or dos Santos.
