In this edition, we will be taking a look back at the fight between Stipe Miocic vs. Roy Nelson from UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo.

Stipe Miocic has had an impressive UFC career, going 6-1 and securing victories over Gabriel Gonzaga, Joey Beltran, and Shane del Rosario, among others.

Fan favorite Roy “Big Country” Nelson earned his spot with the UFC by winning The Ultimate Fighter season 10 when he knocked out Brenden Schaub. Nelson has gone 7-5 in his UFC career, including victories over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, and Matt Mitrione. Oddly enough, all seven of Nelson’s victories have come by knockout, while all five of his defeats have been by decision.

Roy Nelson is scheduled to take on Mark Hunt on September 20 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. This fight ending in a knockout is almost a guarantee.
