Dana White has some choice words about Roy Nelson as TUF premieres on Friday (VIDEO)

Cagewriter

Considering there are no major MMA fights this weekend, it's been a full week of news. UFC 153 was completely rearranged, which is overshadowing the start of another season of "The Ultimate Fighter" on Friday nights.

Heavyweights Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin will coach this season, but word is that Nelson and UFC president Dana White battle more than Nelson and Carwin. White sat down with Yahoo! Sports and talked about his thoughts on Nelson.

"Everything that comes out of his 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 instead of Shane Carwin."

White also had choice comments on how Nelson's appearance affects his sponsorships. He said he advised Nelson to cut his mullet, shave his beard, and work on the belly Nelson has become known for.

"He focuses on all the wrong things. You know what I consider him? The ultimate underachiever. Come into my office and [expletive]. 'I want more sponsors.' Well, you got a mullet down to the middle of your back. You got a Santa Claus beard, and what pops out from underneath the beard is this huge, massive roll. What company wants to throw their logo on that?"

He wants to see Nelson take his career more seriously.

"Take your career serious. Maybe if you took your career serious, I would. The guy could be really good if he cared."

Do you agree with White on Nelson, or should he just lighten up on the fighter? Speak up in the comments, on Facebook or Twitter.
