The best and worst from Bellator 207: Mitrione vs Bader
- The best and worst moments from an exciting night of MMA action.
#1 Worst - "Baby Slice" Kevin Ferguson Jr runs out of gas
It was a bad night for Kevin Ferguson Jr. The son of the late UFC and Bellator star, Kimbo Slice, Ferguson Jr had been on a roll in Bellator.
However, defeat to Corey Browning has put a halt on his career advancement. Even more worrying than the loss is the manner in which it happened.
Ferguson Jr ran out of gas. Badly.
Ferguson initially came out strong with a take-down and big knees to the head that Browning absorbed. However, the dominant first round Ferguson put forth came at a cost.
Both men entered the second round with some fatigue but Ferguson Jr was completely gassed.
Browning dropped Ferguson but "Baby Slice" recovered to maneuver his opponent into choke position. However, the ease with which Browning escaped was proof of how tired Ferguson was. Out of the mount, Browning got on top and quickly finished “Baby Slice” with strikes.
Browning ended a two-fight losing streak in his Bellator debut and shocked the fighting world.
Ferguson now has a lot to think about as he goes back to the drawing board.Published 13 Oct 2018, 12:30 IST
