"I just want a money fight. But if not, I've always wanted to fight (Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira," said Nelson, in a recent interview with Sherdog.com. "I'll take the winner of 'Big Nog' and Cheick Kongo. I'd love that fight."
Nogueira and Kongo are set to square off at UFC 149 on July 21. That card takes place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with Jose Aldo defending his UFC featherweight title against Erik Koch in the main event.
Nelson went on to talk about another future opponent, adding, "Of course (Junior dos Santos), Frank (Mir). There's so many out there. If you're in the UFC, you're the best in the world." He has lost to both dos Santos and Mir, going the distance with each fighter.
