Gunnar Nelson Rocks & Submits Alan Jouban In London

SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh suggested the ideal fight for Gunnar Nelson after his second round submission win over Alan Jouban at UFC Fight Night 107 last night: A fight against two-time welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson to determine "the real Karate Kid".

Gunnar Nelson once again showed off his world class grappling skills in the co-main event from England on Saturday, but this time around the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt set up his submission win with a near knockout on the feet.

Jouban is indeed a model when he is not competing in the UFC.

"I was expecting him to back me into the cage a little bit more than he did".

Gastar Exploration Inc. (NASDAQ:GST) To Report Earnings
The energy company reported ($0.06) EPS for the quarter, meeting the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of ($0.06). The company had revenue of $13.00 million for the quarter, compared to analysts expectations of $16.28 million.

Nelson (16-2-1 MMA, 7-2 UFC) stunned Lafayette native Jouban (15-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) before setting up a fight-ending guillotine choke in the opening minute of the second round.

"I feel really good". I thought the way it went, it was just the most clinical instead of running into him and throwing a bunch of shots to get the knock out.

He's a pretty guy as well, he's a model you know? John Kavanagh, who serves as Nelson's coach, however, has one particular opponent in mind for the Icelandic star's next fight: recent title challenger Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson. That said, Nelson vows to fight more this year, and he wants to do it against the top foes in his division.
