After bursting onto the UFC welterweight scene with a pair of victories over DaMarques Johnson and Jorge Santiago at UFC on FUEL 5 and 7, respectively, emotionless Icelandic cyborg killer Gunnar Nelson has hit something of a rough patch lately. First, he was forced out of his UFC 160 fight with Mike Kyle due to injury (or as he called it, a “system malfunction”), and just last weekend, he went and crashed his pickup truck into an Icelandic river while attempting to escape the evil cybernetic lab in which he was constructed. The gall of some
Nelson’s creator/manager, Halli Nelson, relayed the events to MMAViking, making sure to inform us that his robot son will require only minor repairs before forging ahead with his quest to kill Sarah Connor:
The pickup he was in (they were 4 in the car and Gunnar was in the passenger front seat) went of the icy road and rolled down the hill 3-4 times.
Gunnar is fine but he had to have some stitches in his arm. It (truck) ended up on it’s wheels in Þjórsá, this is Iceland’s longest river. It’s a glacier river with very hard current. If the car had gone one meter further into the river it would have hit deep water and the current would have taken it.
All of them got away with scratches basically even though Gunnar had to have around 10-11 stitches in his arm, he’s fine and will be ready to start training again in a short while.
Right, Halli. Stitches.
Feel free to wish Nelson a smooth recovery over on his Twitter page, but we’re pretty sure he has become sentient to the point that he refuses to treat other forms of technology as subordinates.
