There’s been a lot of pressure on Roy Nelson recently to drop a few kilos and step down to the UFC’s Light Heavyweight division.
It’d be an interesting division for him – there’s no doubt that he’s a highly skilled fighter and seeing him with a lighter frame that will enable him to fully utilise his natural speed should serve him well.
But there’s a little catch before he’ll drop the weight…
Roy will only step down to the LHW division if he can add 100,000 new likes to his Facebook page.
As Nelson explains:
The reason is my friend and I had a discussion about what was better? I think twitter just because of use and for fans interaction, but Facebook is 20x bigger. So we decided to bet. I said if it so easy and great I should be able add 100K fans in 2 weeks because I have that on twitter. Facebook is bigger and better so this should be easy. Right?
Bet is I will try to get to 205 if I can add 100k to Facebook.com/RoyNelsonUFC in two weeks. I love to win bets. Plus he will have to give me a part in his next movie.
It’d be about 18 kilo drop for him but it’s win-win for Nelson. Either way, he’ll be benefiting from an increase in his fan base and will gather a lot more attention from fans.
