A heavyweight clash between Roy Nelson and Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ was recently added to the Bellator 200 event in May and it hasn’t taken long for the two veteran stars to start engaging in some pre-fight mental warfare.
It began when ‘Big Country’ alleged that ‘Cro Cop’ was using performance enhancing drugs, after previously being suspended for two years for using Human Growth Hormone while in the UFC.
“I think Cro Cop’s definitely always improving with age, but I think he’s back on the special supplements, better supplements than usual,” Nelson told MMAjunkie Radio. “Throughout my whole fight career, the only reason people want to fight me or have a chance to beat me, is if they get something. It’s something I just know that everybody is just on it.”
Those comments clearly got under ‘Cro Cop’s’ skin and he’s since returned fire on his Facebook page.
“Dear Roy Nelson,
You don’t have to worry that I’m using any ‘special supplements’ as you claim. The only ‘special supplements’ I’m using is two hard and bloody trainings per day, five days a week. And I will be tested, like all others, during preparations for the fight, and before and right after the fight. So you can be calm. And start thinking of some good excuse after I beat up your fat disrespectful ass, you have enough time to May 25. And do me a favor please, and shave that disgusting beard, look like professional fighter and show respect to your opponent.
