Roy Nelson Impresses In His Victory Over Dave Herman At UFC 146

Roy “Big Country” Nelson threw just three punches Saturday night, but that was enough to drop Dave Herman and return Nelson to the pay window at UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir.

UFC president Dana White admitted on the post-fight show on FUEL TV that he and Lorenzo Fertitta had a conversation with Nelson about his recent performances earlier. Following the win, Nelson made sure to let the bosses know how he felt.

“I don’t know if you noticed after the fight, he came over and pointed and me and yelled some shit at Lorenzo,” White said. “We had a pretty tough conversation with Roy a few weeks ago. I think he came out and made a statement and wanted to shove that right up mine and Lorenzo’s asses, and I accept it.”

Nelson has won two of his last three, but was stopped by Fabricio Werdum in his previous bout. He’s never turned down the chance to test his skills against some of the best heavyweights in the world, including two-time champion Frank Mir.

“I’ve surrounded myself with good people,” Nelson said. “You try to invest in yourself with good people. I like to throw one punch in a fight, but I can live with three.”
