As this past Saturday's "UFC 109: Relentless" event kicked off with a trio of un-aired preliminary bouts, UFC newcomer Joey Beltran entered the octagon for the first time.

His legs were sluggish, his feet like concrete blocks. Punches were hitting him, and he soon became oddly aware of his own breathing. None of it made any sense to the first-rime UFC fighter.

As the refreshingly honest heavyweight today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (http://www.mmajunkie.com/radio), Beltran initially was fighting nerves more so than opponent Rolles Gracie.

"The Mexicutioner," though, ultimately would beat both of them.
