Humanizing Athletes: UFC Fighter Kyle Nelson’s favorite things

UFC Fighter Kyle Nelson (13-3)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Kyle “The Monster” Nelson is one of Canada’s best mixed martial artists. He can do it all. Win by knockout, submission, or outpoint his opponents. Nelson can also fight in two weight divisions, lightweight and featherweight.

After fighting almost all of his fights in Canada, Nelson went into enemy territory for his most recent fight and finished Polo Reyes in the first round.

Nelson finally got an opponent and returns this weekend at  UFC on ESPN 12: Poirier vs. Hooker. He takes on Sean “The Sniper” Woodson on the prelims.
