Brace 2014 Grand Final results: Corey Nelson awarded ONE FC contract

Australia’s multi-promotion welterweight champion has cemented a contract with ONE FC by defeating Steve Micalleff at the Brace 2014 Grand Final held in Canberra over the weekend. The finale crowned six champions (results courtesy of FNA).

Nelson was already the promotion’s welterweight champion and Steve Micalleff stepped up to the challenge. After weathering the early storm, Nelson finished Micalleff with strikes inside of the first round.

Nelson (18-5-1) had previously stated a strong case for being the top Australian welterweight outside the UFC by garnering the Brace, Nitro MMA and AFC straps in an unbeaten run. A prior conviction held Nelson back from fulfilling his promise in the TUF house and now the UFC’s loss is ONE FC’s gain.
