Kyle Nelson
The Monster


Falls to 1-3 in past four bouts
September 12, 2020
Nelson lost to Billy Quarantillo via KO (punches) at 0:07 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It's been a rough go of it for Nelson in the early portion of his UFC career, and those struggles continued on Saturday. He was unable to generate any consistent offense, and his defense -- which has been an ongoing concern during his brief time with the company -- once again betrayed him. Nelson had never be stopped as a professional fighter prior to his arrival in the UFC in December of 2018, and he has since been knocked out twice and submitted once over the course of his first four UFC bouts.

Scores first UFC victory in style
September 21, 2019
Nelson defeated Polo Reyes via KO (punches) at 1:36 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Mexico City.
It was a much needed victory for Nelson on the heels of back-to-back stoppage losses to Diego Ferreira and Matt Sayles to begin his UFC run. Following a quick trip which had Reyes off balance, Nelson connected with a monumental elbow that all but ended his opponent's evening. A few shots followed afterwards, but it was quite clear Reyes was already done. There remains little reason to be excited about Nelson moving forward, but this was an impressive finish.
