Bellator 234 Results from Israel: Unexpected winner in main event; father-son duo earn stoppages in back-to-back fights
Haim Gozali vs Artur Pronin
The second fight of the main card lasted only one round. Gozali took the back of Pronin and took him down to the ground of the MMA Octagon early on. Promin tried to get out, but could not, and Gozali then managed to get the mount. He slowly worked his way into full guard, but then they were forced to stand up.
Gozali got in jabs and forced Pronin to the fence. Pronin tried to get momentum by jumping off the cage. But Gozali managed to get up and stopped his takedown attempt. He trapped the arm of Pronin and then transitioned to a heel hook that forced Pronin to tap out.
This was Gozali's retirement fight and he went out with a big win.
Result: Haim Gozali defeated Artur Pronin via Submission (heel hook, Round 1, 4 minutes and 12 seconds)
Aviv Gozali vs Zaka Fatullazade
Much like his father in the Bellator fight before him, Aviv Gozali managed to get the win in his fight in a short and simple fight. He came forward and grabbed the clinch, throwing the knees. He took Fatullazade to the ground and put him in the Anaconda Choke, making him tap quite a number of times before the referee actually saw the result.
Result: Aviv Gozali defeated Zaka Fatullazade via Submission (Anaconda Choke, Round 1, 56 seconds)
