Roy Nelson (Pictured) entered Saturday night’s scrap appearing physically the best he ever has in the UFC – sans the mullet he transformed into a ponytail, Santa Claus-esque beard and residual belly, of course.
The 36-year-old’s re-dedication to his mixed martial arts career certainly paid off.
Nelson (Pictured) battered Matt Mitrione with a barrage of bombs in the show’s featured attraction. “Meathead,” who also showed up in pronominal shape, showcased his improved standup game by continuing to nail Nelson with several lethal kicks.
However, Nelson was unfazed and blistered Mitrione with a right hook that spelled the beginning of the end.
The TUF 16 Finale took place inside The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
