Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA event was just capped off with former UFC/Bellator veteran Roy Nelson cleaning the clock Dillon Cleckler with a bodacious right hook in the opening round. Cleckler landed several stiff straights, but as soon as Nelson unloaded that ‘Big Country’ horsepower, it was a wrap! This was Nelson’s first win since September of 2017, and his first fight in nearly three years. Roy just might have found himself a new home in bare knuckle MMA.

Nelson was pressuring right away, launching a few haymakers as he attempted his takedowns. Cleckler did a great job of avoiding the early power, as well as stuffing the takedowns. The right hand of Cleckler started to find a home, which was surprising Nelson. Then, Roy started to swing back.
Big Country landed with a clean uppercut, and then a few moments later came the big heat. An ultra-wide right hook landed right on the button, causing Cleckler to collapse under his own weight. Nelson followed up with a sinister hammerfist to his dazed opponent, and that was all the referee needed to see to stop this one. Bare knuckle MMA baby! Roy Nelson def. Dillon Cleckler by TKO at 3:24 of round 1: Heavyweight
