Roy Nelson is a jiu-jitsu ace, so where are all these knockouts coming from? Nelson has two UFC fights, two huge knockouts and $55,000 in bonuses for knockouts of the night. "The Belly" has exploded onto the scene. The roar for Nelson's win over Stefan Struve on Wednesday night was the loudest of the night. From walking out to "Weird" Al Jankovic's "I'm Fat" to rubbing his gut after the win, he's becoming a huge star. And none of it's fake. The guy has fun and loves to eat. He essentially employed the "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" diet before the fight. Cagewriter was lucky to catch Nelson in between his late night meal and a planned trip to Waffle House in the morning.
Highlights of the conversation included:
-- Saying he felt bad about having to continue the onslaught against a clearly dazed Struve
-- His plan for defending his UFC title belt against Shane Carwin at the end of 2010
