Pic: Roy Nelson's hand is broken, grotesque following Josh Barnett fight at UFC Japan

New, comments

Longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Roy Nelson was trying his damnedest to defeat Josh Barnett when they went to war in the five-round main event of UFC Fight Night 75 (watch it), which took place last Saturday night (Sept. 26, 2015) inside Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Alas, it was not meant to be, as "The Warmaster" took home the unanimous decision victory.

Operating with a severely broken hand certainly didn't help, as "Big Country" today (Sept. 30) released a photo of the X-ray showing just how badly the bone separated in his heavyweight mitt. Not surprisingly, Nelson is suspended for six months.

Back from the doctor, hand is broke. Will heal up with the love & support of the Country Club Fans
