As noted last week, a current UFC fighter's representatives recently sent feelers to WWE about joining the company.

That fighter is former International Fight League Heavyweight Champion and winner of "The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights" Roy Nelson.

Nelson, despite being with UFC, has reportedly signed a deal with Roy Nelson Jr.'s Squared Circle Promotions. Squared Circle claims now that they have exclusive rights to Nelson's fights so his status with UFC is in limbo.

Nelson, 34 years old, has never done pro wrestling and has a physique more like a Husky Harris than a John Cena. Nelson recently posted Tweets talking about WWE's Royal Rumble and The Undertaker.

No word yet if WWE is talking with Nelson or what their reaction to the feelers were.

I enjoy MMA and all, but no. MMA guys wouldn't cut it in the WWE. You need mic skills, which these guys just don't have.

Ha! I would love to see Nelson in the WWE. He's a man's man so I think a lot of the casuals would get behind him fairly easily.
