UFC 146 Results: What We Learned from Roy Nelson vs. Dave Herman
What We'll Remember from This Fight
The punch. Did anything else even happen?
What We Learned About Roy Nelson
A lot of observers (including me) were predicting Nelson (17-7) would dip into his jiu-jitsu toolkit for this one. Whether that was in the game plan or not, we'll never know. Hey, when you have a fastball like that, you don't need to resort to "game planning" and all those other niceties.
Nelson has proven once again that, although he may not be championship material, he has a place in the heavyweight division if that's where he wishes to be.
What We Learned About Dave Herman
Well, it's his second straight T/KO loss. Three of his four pro losses have come this way. Does Herman (21-4 and 1-2 in the UFC) have a suspect chin, or did he simply fall victim to a perfect haymaker? Probably a little of both, but I know that if I was fighting Herman next, I'd want to test that jaw.
What's Next for Roy Nelson
I'd like to see the UFC reschedule his fight with Antonio Silva, Nelson's original opponent at UFC 146. Or maybe the loser of July's fight between Cheick Kongo and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to determine—once and for all—the true gatekeeper in the heavyweight division.
What's Next for Dave Herman
Pat Barry and a battle for relevance.
