PLAYERS: Roy Nelson

UFC Heavyweight Roy Nelson

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the video below is worth 70,000 – as in $70k in ‘Knockout of the Night’ dollars for UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson (Pictured).

There really isn’t much that can be written about Nelson’s spectacular KO of Dave Herman that can’t be seen in 51 seconds. Courtesy of a vicious overhand right, that’s how long it took for “Big Country” to put “Pee Wee” to sleep on Saturday at UFC 146.

It was a much-needed win for Nelson, as the former “The Ultimate Fighter 10″ winner had lost three of his last four scraps prior to colliding with Herman.

UFC 146 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
