He can debate sports with the same passion, guts and clever creativity that he writes and performs his classic music. He and I share this: we think we’ve never lost a debate. Nelly was made for UNDISPUTED on FS1.” “I’m really excited to join FOX Sports and work with Skip, Shannon and Joy to discuss all the sports topics I love,” adds Nelly.
