Mixed Martial Arts CareerEdit
The Ultimate FighterEdit
Shane earned a spot in the house by defeating Charles Diaz via decision after two rounds. Later on, the fighters were given the opportunity to watch UFC 84 on TV. While watching, Junie Browning and Shane began drinking. The pair soon became belligerent and started to throw things into the pool and attempted to pick fights with the other fighters. The next day, UFC President Dana White came to the house and expressed his displeasure with the Nelson and Browning's actions. He announced his decision to give them a second chance and did not kick them off of the show. White then spoke to the coaches to ensure that Nelson would be in the first Lightweight (155 lbs.) fight. Efrain Escudero defeated Shane in the second round with a head triangle.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Shane Nelson had his second fight in the UFC defeating Aaron Riley at UFC 96, Nelson won via TKO forty four seconds into round one. The stoppage is being called one of the worst in UFC history. Dana White has said he wants to make it right for Aaron and get a rematch to happen. Riley defeated him via unanimous decision in a rematch at UFC 101.
Shane has a son.
