Mike Kimbel ties Bellator record with wild six-second KO at Bellator 207

Mike Kimbel is just two fights into his professional career and already he’s etched his name into the Bellator history books.

A 21-year-old bantamweight prospect fighting out of Connecticut, Kimbel tied the all-time record for the fastest knockout in Bellator history on Friday with a scintillating six-second KO of Alex Potts at Bellator 207.

Kimbel (2-0) flattened his unlucky foe in the opening seconds of the fight with a one-two combo that dropped Potts (1-1). Kimbel’s mark of six seconds tied a Bellator record that has stood since former middleweight champion Hector Lombard knocked out Jay Silva in just six seconds at Bellator 18 in 2010.

Kimbel’s professional debut was an equally destructive finish of Geoffrey Then that required only 63 seconds at Bellator 194. Check out Kimbel’s latest handiwork below.
