Filed under: News , UFC UFC President Dana White said he thought the CABMMA should “bury” Roy Nelson after the heavyweight kicked referee John McCarthy following his win at UFC Fight Night 95. The Brazilian commission, however, decided on a far smaller punishment. Following his second-round knockout of Antonio Silva (19-10-1 MMA, 3-7-1 UFC) at the event at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil, Nelson (21-13 MMA, 9-9 UFC) approached “Big” John from behind and gave him a light kick to the butt followed by the middle finger and a verbal lashing. Nelson believed McCarthy stopped the fight late, forcing him to land what he felt like were unnecessary additional blows on “Bigfoot,” a fighter Nelson has trained with in the past and considers a good friend. A judge with the Brazilian sports court subsequently suspended Nelson (21-13 MMA, 9-9 UFC) nine months and fined him approximately $23,400 for contacting McCarthy following a knockout win over Antonio Silva (19-10-1 MMA, 3-7-1 UFC) at the FS1-televised event on Sept. 26 in Brasilia.
