TUF 10 Heavyweight tournament winner, Roy Nelson returns to the UFC’s Octagon next weekend against legendary MMA Heavyweight, Antonio Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira.
Nelson is looking to break out of his latest funk in which he has dropped two unanimous decisions in a row to Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier respectively.
Today, we take a trip back to remind us of the dangerous power Nelson carries with him in his right hand. At UFC 146, Nelson was looking to rebound from a tough decision loss to Fabricio Werdum three months prior. That night, he took on Dave Herman in a must win bout.
Just under one minute into the bout, Nelson landed a colossal overhand right that folded Herman like a folding chair. It was a sensational KO, and you can relive all of the action in the video above.
The KO victory was the start of a three fight winning streak for Nelson in which he knocked out Matt Mitrione and Cheick Kongo before losing to Miocic. Nelson will look to utilize his power this weekend and turn the lights off on Minotauro Nogueira’s legendary career.
