Roy Nelson, the UFC heavyweight who is known as much for his rotund figure as his 16-7 record, is thinking about making a change, but with a caveat. He made a bet with a friend, and Nelson will try to drop to light heavyweight if he gets 100,000 Facebook likes.

Bet is I will try to get to 205 if I can add 100k to in two weeks. I love to win bets. Plus he will have to give me a part in his next movie.

For his fight with Fabricio Werdum, Nelson weighed in at 246 lbs. He's six-foot, a normal height for light heavies. Considering how he has slimmed down and added muscle since his stint on "The Ultimate Fighter," dropping to 205 lbs. isn't out of the question.

As of right now, he has 62,000, and 13 days to continue to add likes. You can help him in this by visiting Nelson's Facebook page and simply pressing like. Feel free to visit the Cagewriter Facebook page and give it a like, too.
