via UFC Official Facebook

UFC Fighter Roy “Big Country” Nelson has always been a fan favorite, but the heavyweight contender stepped it up this weekend when he chose Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” for his entrance music during UFC 159 at the Prudential Center in Newark.

The capacity crowd appreciated the gesture, meeting Nelson with thunderous applause and cheers.

Big Country made quick work of his opponent Cheick Congo, toppling the French fighter with a vicious left hand at 2:03 in the first round and earning “Knockout of the Night” honors.

Check out a short video of the entrance below:
