UFC welterweight Gunnar ‘Gunni’ Nelson got things back on track after defeating a dangerous Alex Oliveira via second round submission at UFC 231 earlier this month.
Nelson is known for his calm demeanor topped with his elite grappling skills. However in a recent interview with Eurobash, a previously unknown side of Nelson was revealed, his love for video games, especially Call of Duty.
“I love Call of Duty,” Nelson told Peter Carroll. “I’m playing the new one now, I was actually playing it a bit earlier. I start playing Infinite Warfare, then Black Ops3 a little bit, but it was IW I played mostly. I didn’t like the WW2 one, I’m more of a glance/movement kind of guy. This one is a little bit quicker so I do like. I play a bit of Fortnite too.”
Nelson also said that he would like to create an online gaming fanbase just like former UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson as he gained a lot of sponsorships through online gaming streams.
“I think I will,” Nelson replied when asked if we would be interested in starting to stream his gaming sessions. “I think I eventually will, my friends keep telling to start streaming and stuff. So, I probably will. I need to get a proper set up and all that kind of stuff, but I think I will.”
