UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson is quietly making his case for a title-shot with a trio of first-frame knockouts in his immediate rear-view mirror including a recent clubbing of Cheick Kongo. The 36-year old isn’t sure who he’ll be booked against next but he has his sights set on a few options, all of whom he sees as serving his purpose of competing for a belt before the end of 2013.

“Big Country” took some time to talk about his immediate future in an interview with Inside MMA where he also credited his financial gain from a couple of performance-based bonuses with helping him raise his skill-level as evident over the past few fights.

“I’ve taken that money that I’ve earned with these bonuses and re-invested in myself.”

“My biggest focus is Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva. I’m eyeing that gold, but I’m always down to fight anybody.”
