He understands nothing.


Explanation:
He understands nothing is MORE EMPHATIC THAN he doesn't understand anything, though, of course, both are correct.

He understands nothing / He doesn't understand a thing!


Explanation:
Like I said before both He understands nothing and He doesn't understand a thing, are correct.

But there is another possibility I also like: He doesn't understand a thing! This is a little more colloquial.

Regards, :)
