Roy Nelson’s notable win over Joe Lauzon came via a triangle choke. This was the first fight of Lauzon’s career and he used it to his advantage as he got the fight turned in his favor. He choked Lauzon out and then held him down for the remainder of the fight. After the bout, Nelson offered to give up his title.
From the start of the match, referee Herb Marquardt was worried about the level of combat that was taking place. He had noticed that both fighters were pulling on each other and that one of them was close to getting hurt. Eventually, with 6 minutes left in the fight, referee Herb Marquardt stood them both down. Nelson then made his entrance and laid on top of Lauzon.
According to Nelson, during the altercation with Lauzon he bit him on his right ear. He claimed that he did not mean any harm, but when the referee was talking to him about how he bit him the other guy said he was going to put a six-inch hook on Nelson’s ear. According to Nelson, he did not see anything when he bit Lauzon, but when he got up to leave he saw that his ear had been snapped open. He then asked to be taken off the fight and told that he would get his ears checked out before the bout was scheduled to begin.
Roy Nelson continued to talk to his opponent throughout the fight. Even when he was on the losing end, he would still try to give his opponent a little hope. He held out hope that he could get the fight back into his favor. Unfortunately, when the bout ended, it was announced that Nelson had suffered a knockout. He fell to the ground and began to cry while he was being interviewed by the media.
Roy Nelson was upset about the way the fight ended. He did not feel that he had been given a fair chance to fight for the title. He is not the only one who has fought like this though. Many fighters have expressed similar feelings. It is hard for them to accept their loss especially if they feel that they could have done better.
Roy Nelson learned a lot from this encounter. He learned to not trust in his ability to win and to trust in the United States Marine Corps. Even though he is not a natural-born fighter, he has proven over his career that he can fight to the fullest when the occasion calls for it. He has beaten many tough opponents and he knows what it takes to win in a fight.
Although he is not considered to be the best in the world, no one can argue with his tenacious attitude and his winning personality. He has a winning attitude because he has beaten some very formidable opponents. If he is able to defeat Wight someday in their fight for the vacant WBA heavyweight title, then he will surely be considered the best in the world.
Nelson has been very effective at his style of fighting. He prefers a very confrontational style of fighting, and he attacks his opponent with tremendous energy. He wants to hurt his opponent as much as possible before the referee stands them both down. The American audience loves to watch a guy who is really getting going and really trying to win. They love it when a boxer says that he is going to hurt his opponent.
Nelson was definitely the “funniest guy on the planet.” He had a unique style of fighting that was not popular among many of his opponents. Because he had an interesting style of fighting, he often received a standing ovation from the crowd whenever he fought. He had a great style of challenging his opponents but he did not always succeed in winning. Most of the time he would lose by knockout in what was supposed to be a match up.
Nelson also had a reputation for being a big shot caller. In every fight he would call out his opponents and taunt them before the bout even started. Nelson even once contemplated fighting steroid users out of anger. Whatever the reason for his toughness, he sure made a lot of enemies in the ring. Even though Nelson seemed like a big bad ass, he was actually quite intelligent.
