Watch: Gunnar Nelson Scores Slick Submission Win Over Alan Jouban At UFC London

Stoic SBG Ireland submission specialist Gunnar Nelson(16-2-1) scored his second straight victory on Saturday night at UFC London, snapping the three-fight winning-streak of Alan Jouban(15-5) with a second-round guillotine choke.

The Icelandic welterweight has consistently shown massive improvements in his stand-up game in recent years and on this occasion he set up the fight-ending submission with a combination of strikes.

Operating out of his characteristic wide, karate-style stance, ‘Gunni’ landed a perfectly timed straight right hand to the chin of his American foe in the early stages of the first round. The shot completely robbed Jouban of his equilibrium and he staggered bambi-legged back into the fence. Nelson then landed a head-kick but instead of opening up with a barrage of strikes, he chose to humanely drag Jouban to the floor and procure the tap.

It was another slick performance from Nelson following on from his domination of Albert Tumenov last May. He has now won three of his last four, with the only loss in that stint coming against rampaging Brazilian backpack Demian Maia.
