Yes, Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson Really Is In The Scorpion King 4

Move over Gina Carano, Ronda Rousey, Randy Couture and GSP, there’s a new MMA fighter-turned-action movie star in town – none other than Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson.

Apparently Nelson appears alongside a few other MMA notables including Royce Gracie, Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva and Rener Gracie’s wife Eve Torres.

Here’s the blurb for the movie which, needless to say, is heading straight to DVD when it comes out in January.

“The deposed warrior king Mathayus (Victor Webster, The Scorpion King: The Battle for Redemption) embarks on his most dangerous assignment ever as he attempts to bring lasting peace to his troubled land. When he is betrayed by a trusted friend, Mathayus must marshal all his strength and cunning to outwit a formidable opponent who will stop at nothing to destroy him in an epic battle to the death. With a cast that includes an array of world-renowned athletes and professional fighters including “The Ultimate Fighter” winner Roy “Big Country” Nelson, renowned mixed martial arts fighter Royce Gracie, Cage Rage World Champion Antonio “Big Foot” Silva, three-time WKO World Kickboxer Champion Don “The Dragon” Wilson, and three time WWE Divas champion Eve Torres, The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power brings an unprecedented level of excitement and action to a much-anticipated new adventure.”
