Roy Nelson

UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson confirmed that he suffered a broken bone in his right hand after defeating Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in Abu Dhabi recently.

Nelson knocked the former interim UFC heavyweight champion out, landing a series of shots with the now-broken weapon.

“Finally made it to the doc, its broke, but sometimes it happens when you punch so hard,” he posted, along with an X-ray of the damage done.

There has been no timetable set for “Big Country” as far as a return to action goes.
