We expected Roy Nelson and Bigfoot Silva to throw down with massive power, and they did. Each heavy shot echoed throughout Brasília, and even though they made it out of the first round, greatly reducing the chances that this fight would end, Nelson finished it with his heavy right hand.

With Bigfoot on the ground, it’s Nelson’s job to finish the fight. It’s clear, however, after looking at the replay, that Nelson didn’t have to land those brutal follow-up shots. This led to Big Country kicking Big John over what he had to do to Bigfoot after the big punch.
