Roy Nelson knocks out Brendan Schaub to become The Ultimate Fighter

Roy NelsonRoy “Big Country” Nelson and his moon-sized belly earned his golden ticket into the UFC for some time to come with a brutal first round knockout over the previously undefeated Brendan Schaub this evening in the final bout of this season’s edition of “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights“.

Roy and Brendan threw down for the crown during “The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale” that took place from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las vegas.

Nelson scored a takedown early on but to the surprise of many Schaub managed to get back to his feet in no time where the Colorado native began to pull away with sharp jabs and crisp striking, just before “Big Country” leveled the playing field and Schaub all at once with a massive right hand that left Schaub in a heap and Roy with the title of TUF 10 Champion.

Nelson bested fellow heavyweights Kimbo Slice, Justin Wren, and James McSweeney, along with Schaub to be crowned the tournament champion.
