Huntsville native Kyle Nelson gave fans his first win Saturday night at UFC 159 at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, when he stopped Mexican-born fighter Marco Polo Reyes via first-round TKO.

The finish occurred early into the first round as Nelson landed a sharp elbow off a clinch break. Polo Reyes was temporarily stunned and Nelson took advantage, landing a looping right hand that stopped the Mexican fighter in his tracks. Nelson followed up with big combinations as the referee moved in to stop the match for a TKO.

This is Nelson’s first victory for the UFC.
