Roy Nelson Breaks Record At UFC 161

Roy Nelson is accustomed to placing his gut front and center during fights, but he’s probably regretting that since UFC 161. On the card, Stipe Miocic connected with a record 437 significant strikes according to the number crunchers at Fight Metric.

No fighter has ever taken that many shots inside the Octagon for a 15 minute fight.

Heading into the show, Nelson took the fight on short notice and was riding three consecutive round one stoppages. His run was ended by Miocic, who improves to 4-1.

By taking the fight, Nelson fulfilled his UFC contract. Both sides are currently talking about a new deal.
