May 9, 2016 1:36 am by Russell Ess

Gunnar Nelson got back to his winning ways at UFC Fight Night 87, which took place in Rotterdam over the weekend.

Nelson beat Albert Tumenov by submission in the second round of their fight and talked about his preference for not wrapping his hands when he fights at the post-fight press conference.

Nelson mentions that he would actually prefer fighting with no hand wraps and no gloves. Joe Rogan has previously talked about how he feels MMA would actually be a safer sport if they did away with hand wraps and gloves.
