On Saturday’s UFC Fight Night card, Huntsville’s Kyle “The Monster” Nelson lost by decision to England's Jai “Black Country Banger” Herbert following a 22-month layoff from the sport.

The final two rounds went to Herbert, who received a 29-28 victory from all three judges.

According to UFC Stats, Nelson who’s record is 13 & 5, scored more significant strikes, but Herbert had more control time.
