NEWARK, NJ -- For Roy Nelson, it's feast or famine. He either scores the knockout shot or loses a decision, as evidenced by his recent record.
His last nine wins are by knockout. His last five losses have all gone to a decision.
The stoppage came at 2:03 of the first round.
"All I do is set them up and knock them down," he said. "I want that gold."
Kongo never got his offense going. Earlier in the round, Nelson backed him against the cage where they clinched until being broken apart by the ref. It was only a few seconds later when Nelson dropped the hammer.
Kongo lost for the second time in three fights. He's now 18-8-2.
