21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Awesome Video of the Day: Watch Roy Nelson Get the Everloving Sh*t Beat Out of Him For Nearly 7 Minutes


(Props to Youtube user Brutha Muzone via Fightlinker for the find.)

We all know the story of Roy Nelson’s unbreakable chin. Forged by Biggoron high in the alcoves of Death Mountain and crafted with only the finest of bomb flowers, the Petra mandibulo is capable of withstanding a Mark 3 blast and doubles as a cardboard baler on weekends. Fact: After selecting one of his bastard offspring for sacrifice each night, Jay Leno prays to Roy Nelson for strength before tucking himself into bed. The dude’s got a solid jaw, is what we’re saying.

As we are also aware, “Big Country” set a career record for strikes absorbed in the UFC (clocking in at a ridiculously ridiculous 437) without being knocked out during his three round drubbing at the hands of Stipe Miocic last month. While it’s a damn respectable honor to hold in one regard, it’s also a sign that maybe, just maybe, he should consider turning down that 4th helping of DiaBeef Jerky every now and again.

But if Nelson is able to successfully negotiate a new contract, it looks like he will be the next man to face off with former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 166 in October. If that ends up being the case, we’ll surely be in for a lot more of what’s depicted above. Mainly, Roy Nelson eating shots like they are pork rinds dipped in Sriracha. The above video, entitled “Clubbed to Death,” highlights Nelson’s positively Bruce Willian chin in his performances against Miocic, Junior Dos Santos and Fabricio Werdum and is truly something to behold. For the sake of fairness, his handful of overhand deathball KO’s are sprinkled in as well, so enjoy.

Nelson is gonna be all kinds of retarded by the time his career is over

@Jose - Well, you're half right. Nelson was hit with 106 significant strikes in the Stipe fight *alone*, bringing his career total in the UFC to 437 strikes absorbed. Check Fightmetric to see how many he absorbed in the Mir, Werdum, and Dos Santos fights as well.

Sorry- I made a mistake. The total sig. strikes in that fight was 212. (106 was just the first round.)

But further fact checking reveals that he absorbed 182 against Werdum and 92 against Mir. That brings the total just for those fights to 486. So, I think the 437 number is still not accurate. I stand by my original statement that the 437 number was just DW sayin' stuff.

And by the way, go back and look at that CP article Elias wrote - he said the same thing: "We originally reported that number based on White’s statement. So did many other outlets, including MMA Weekly, Yahoo! Sports and MMA Fighting. A look over at FightMetric, the official statisticians for the UFC, however, reveals that Nelson absorbed only 106 strikes [sic] from Miocic. White was probably using hyperbole to underscore a couple points about Nelson – how tough he is, how badly he got beaten, etc. – but it is telling that his 400 + strikes number didn’t strike many in the media as too far off."

Why was my other comment hidden?

@J.Jones My mistake - looks like I'm the dummy here.

I can't believe you guys (and others) are still reporting that 437 sig. strikes number as fact. As you pointed out on this site right after the event, that was hyperbole from DW - the actual fightmetric figure says he got hit with 106 significant strikes. (Check hxxp://hosteddb.fightmetric.com/fights/index/4295 or your own reporting here hxxp://www.cagepotato.com/enough-jokes-roy-nelson-needs-to-leave-the-heavyweight-division/)

I have a headache after watching that.

I honestly think Nelson is gonna be the one to derail the over-hyped Cormier train. He's got the grappling, submission skills, KO power, and Thors Hammer for a chin. That beard could contain several chins. You never know. I feel as if Cormier has been fed a bunch of fighters who have very little left in the I Give A Shit tank so this could be a better fight then most think it will.

I know it could happen to anyone(Valasquez getting hit behind ear against Dos Santos, being Ko'd, but out of everyone, everyone to KO the man with the iron chin, it is none other than Andre Arlovski. Man takes beatings from guys who hit far harder, and he gets knocked out back in the day by Arlovski.

One does not simply KO nelson indeed
humperdinkal- July 18, 2013 at 1:59 pm
I don't know. Disagree when it comes to Cormier. His reach isn't as long as all the guys he fought that have beaten him. I think it will actually be Cormier backing away taking down Nelson every chance he gets. Cormier actually standing toe to toe with Nelson? He wouldn't even do that with Mir(granted Mir has some good boxing, but nowhere near the power Nelson does) Let's not forget, Nelson had "pneumonia" the day he fought Mir:)

In the not too distant future, Big Country's opponent is going to be pugilistic dementia.
