Bellator 63 just wrapped up the opening round of the Bellator season six welterweight tournament at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut with Gary LaPlante in attendance and supposedly wearing a perfectly nice sweater/collared shirt combo. This marks the first MMA event in years in which Gary didn’t don Bad Boy clothing, that alone is worth acknowledging in an article.
Ben Saunders advanced to the quarterfinals in a hard fought match over Raul Amaya that went to a decision, even after a nasty armbar in the second that was scarily close to a Ronda Rousey moment.
In the next fight David Rickels took 22 seconds out of his life and TKO’d Jordan Smith.
Bryan Baker eeked out the split decision over Carlos Alexandre Pereira to advance, then Karl Amoussou declared his need to not just defeat his opponents, but destroy them in his new weight class. When he stepped into the cage against Chris Lozano, that’s exactly what he did. Click below for the gifs from Zombie Prophet.
Sick sweep from Karl.
