After two straight losses to Junior Dos Santos and Frank Mir, Roy “Big Country” Nelson was in danger of seeing his UFC career dwindle away.

Cro Cop was in the fight up until the end of the second round, after his numerous big blows had been deadened by Nelson’s infamous ability to take a punch. Toward the end of the round, Nelson dropped him, using his weight to get into the dominant crucifix position before wailing on him with quick shots at his head.
