It’s been over a year since Nelson (17-5-1 MMA, 8-5 UFC) was last seen in the octagon. He suffered a loss of unanimous decision to Gilbert Burns in September 2019.
However, when he told reporters at a UFC 257 pre-match press conference, Cabana provided the latest information about Nelson, claiming that the 32-year-old Icelandic welterweight was eager to return.
“(He) is now actively looking for a fight,” Cabana said. “So today I was only chatting with my dad / manager Hari (Nelson). He says,” Be sure to tell those we are looking for a fight. ” So the world, Gunnar Nelson: Let’s fight him. His gym literally just reopened last week. Iceland had a very tight blockade and he was unable to train in martial arts. He was still lifting. He is now jacked. He is huge
“In late March, I think we’re watching (Johnnie) Walker on March 27th, but it’s great to have Gunnar Nelson on that card.”
After UFC’s tenure began 4-0, Nelson produced a variety of octagonal results. He has now lost his first consecutive match in his career and has endured his roughest stretches.
