Icelandic fighting phenom Gunnar Nelson displayed his improved striking skills at UFC London where he faced Russian brawler Omari Akhmedov. “Gunni” started out patiently but suddenly stung Akhmedov with a explosive strike that sent Russian crashing down. On the ground Nelson displayed excellent top control while laying strikes on his opponent. The Icelander sealed the deal with a guillotine choke near the end of round one. Undefeated Nelson is now 3-0 in the UFC.
