The fight began with an in arena blackout in Bojangles, North Carolina that necessitated the airing of a preliminary fight.
Roy Nelson, the winner of the highest rating season of The Ultimate Fighter, came into his fight with 6'11" Stefan Struve talking a big game and carrying big belly on his low slung 6 foot frame.
He quickly demolished his much taller opponent. Dropping him with a huge right hook and following up with savage ground and pound to force the stoppage.
Before the fight rumor had it that Nelson would be fighting top contender Junior Dos Santos if he won this fight.
Looks like that fight will happen. And it looks like people will realistically have to consider Roy Nelson in the UFC title picture.
Regardless of how that fight goes, Roy "Big Country" Nelson has emerged as a star in the UFC with back to back KOs in his first two fights.
