This week’s installment of the Fight of the Week features a heavyweight clash between Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Fabiano Scherner from IFL’s Las Vegas event this past February. This is Nelson’s first title defense as the heavyweight champion of the IFL as he takes on Team Quest product and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner Fabiano Scherner. Nelson’s next appearance inside the ring will be at Affliction: Day of Reckoning against slugger Paul Buentello.
“Big Country” is best known for his unimpressive physique but don’t let his belly fool you. The guy can flat out fight. He’s a renowned grappler and wrestler who also contains huge power in his hands. Scherner’s strategy will be to get him down and work his submission game from the top but it will be hard against someone the size of Nelson. Will Nelson be able to keep it standing and unload his big bombs? Or will Scherner be able to take Nelson down and work his BJJ game from the top? Watch the fight to find out!
