Roy Nelson, fresh off another knockout victory, appeared on a recent episode of Inside MMA. Nelson, riding a three-fight win streak, talked about his sudden rise up the heavyweight rankings.
“The fans love the long ball and everyone loves the knockout. It’s why everyone wanted to see Mike Tyson fight,” Nelson said. “Everyone just loves to see someone get knocked out.”
Nelson (19-7) has picked up his last three wins in a total of just under six minutes of action, including the stoppage over Cheick Kongo last month.
While the former Ultimate Fighter winner asked to be placed in a future title fight, it appears Nelson could be facing either Daniel Cormier next, though, nothing has been confirmed yet.
