The Bellator 207: Mitrione vs. Bader preliminary card is in progress, and one of the highlights of the night has already taken place.
Mike Kimbel (2-0) made his pro debut under the Bellator MMA banner, winning by slam TKO against Geoffrey Then at Bellator 194 in February. What was his follow-up performance? A six-second KO of Alex Potts, who was clocked with a right hand and then a hammerfist before the referee called things off.
Watch the video below:
Potts did get up immediately after the fight was stopped, but he was fighting the referee, which is usually not a good sign that you’re okay.
This win ties the Bellator MMA record for fastest KO in the promotion’s history. Hector Lombard famously wiped out Jay Silva in the same amount of time way back in 2010.
Between the slam KO and now a six-second KO, it appears as if Kimbel is one to watch on the Bellator circuit.
