Roy Nelson won't win every one of his UFC fights but we're all in for plenty of laughs along the way. UFC.com posted a behind-the-scenes look at Nelson's activities before the Stefan Struve fight. The video is hilarious and features a silly moment (3:26 mark) that actually foreshadowed the way he'd finish Struve.
His trainer partner stood on a chair to try and replicate the Dutchman's 6-feet-11 frame. Then he put a glove and a shoe on the end of some sticks and jabbed away at the short fat guy. Nelson does a masterful job of bobbing and weaving before he lands a vicious overhand right. Look familiar? Nelson finished Struve in 39 seconds Wednesday night at Ultimate Fight Night 21.
Let's hope Nelson patents the "shoe on a stick method" of training. "Big Country" needs to cash in on this gem. The poor guy already flopped with his Burger King ploy.
