Gunnar Nelson claimed a submission win over Alan Jouban that will surely secure him a tidy bonus as he wowed all in attendance by going 0-60 real bloody quick in the second round.
Nelson took his time in the first but dominated once he secured a takedown as many thought he would. But it was all over when Nelson connected with a sweet shot that folded his opponent before jumping right into a guillotine that ended the fight.
Dan Hary's reaction said it all.

Just like that! You've got to love him going straight for the choke when most would have jumped in with strikes.
Speaking after the fight Nelson expressed his desire to finish his opponents more often, so he will no doubt be delighted with that performance even if his stoic demeanour hides it.
Ranked 9th in the UFC welterweight division, so surely he will be hoping for another high-ranked opponent for his next fight.
