Matt Serra, Dan Henderson and Roy Nelson all have something in common.

A right hand that apparently that everyone knows is coming and very few can stop it, and at UFC 146 Dave Herman was added to the list of fighters who couldn’t Roy Nelson from landing it.

Some would say that Saturday night was almost make or break for former Ultimate Fighter winner Roy Nelson after dropping three out of his last four fights.

He wasn’t thinking about that however as he was just heading into Saturday night looking for a win and to appease the fans in attendance.

Well, he did just that and more.

Herman tried his best to keep Nelson at distance and use his longer reach to put the Las Vegas fighter away from landing a power shot.

The plan was working well until it didn’t. Nelson came in with both barrels loaded and uncorked a huge right hand that blasted Herman on the jaw, dropping him to the canvas in dramatic fashion.

Nelson followed up with one more quick punch, but it was already over and the referee swooped in for the save.

The timing on his punch was picture perfect and Nelson attributes his diet as the reason why he was able to spot the opening, and land the shot on target.

“A lot of eating, you don’t want to miss your mouth,” Nelson said with a smile.

The win puts Nelson back on track after suffering a loss in his last fight against Fabricio Werdum at UFC 143. The former TUF champion also thanked his opponent for stepping in on short notice after several switches since he was first placed on the card.

“I want to thank Pee-Wee for actually taking the fight after everybody else dropped out on me, and didn’t want to fight me, and I’m glad he did,” Nelson said after the win.

As for Dave Herman, he has now lost two fights in a row and definitely needs to go back to the drawing board before his return to the UFC for his next bout.
