Roy Nelson returned to the win column in a big way at UFC Fight Night 39.

After rocking Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira multiple times, Big Country eventually flattened the Brazilian with a right hand late in the first round. The knockout ended a two-loss skid for Nelson, who gained job security and likely earned another big fight with the win.
