Roy Nelson continues his streak as the most unlikely knockout artist in MMA with a sudden and vicious first round KO of French kickboxer Cheick Kongo at UFC 159.

The two men clinched up to start the fight. Cheick Kongo landed some good knees, but Roy got double underhooks against the fence. Referee Kevin Mulhall seperated the two men at that point, which UFC commentator Joe Rogan did not like (have to agree with him there). The two men circled a bit longer, before a HUGE Roy Nelson right hand floors Kongo. And that, as they say, is all she wrote.

At 2:03 of round 1, Roy Nelson is your winner, and adds another notch to his very large belt.
