UFC Fight Night 39 in Tweets: Pros react to Roy Nelson's devastating KO of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, more

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

When Roy Nelson comes to fight, you usually know what you're going to get. Friday afternoon was no exception, as Nelson left former Pride heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira flattened and unconscious on the mat, yet another victim to Big Country's trademark right hand.

The vicious walk-off knockout highlighted an entertaining day of fights at UFC Fight Night 39, which took place in Abu Dhabi's outdoor du Arena. And as always, the pros were there throughout the afternoon to weigh in on all the action.
