Roy Nelson KOs Matt Mitrione in 1st


Matt Mitrione was not ready for Roy Nelson.

Nelson (18-7, 5-3 UFC) dispatched the Blackzilians representative with a crushing three-punch combination and follow-up ground strikes in the first round of their main event at “The Ultimate Fighter 16” Finale on Saturday at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

It was over 2:58 after it began.

Mitrione did well for a time, as he belted the former International Fight League champion with heavy kicks to the arms, body and legs. However, Nelson’s punching power made its appearance a little more than midway through round one, as he floored Mitrione with a right uppercut-left hook-overhand right combination. “Big Country” -- whose original opponent, Shane Carwin, withdrew from the event with a knee injury -- finished it with a series of jackhammer right hands on his turtled adversary.

That uppercut was nice. Did anyone else notice it was the same strike thrown during Roy's promo vid during his wing chung demo?

I know its difficult to think in the heat of the moment but I have to think Mitrione drilled a ton on defense for Roy's right hand. So to stand still as Roy walks forward and Matt throws out his lead hand like that just seemed like such a rookie mistake. Again though it is easy to say that in hindsight.
