Bellator 206 video: Arlene Blencowe knocks out Amber Leibrock with violent slam

Who would have thought fight fans would witness a violent slam knockout from a fighter not named Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at Bellator 206?

Well that is exactly what went down when Arlene Blencowe took on Amber Leibrock on the preliminary card airing on MMA Fighting and DAZN.

After two hard fought rounds, Blencowe found herself stuck in an armbar from top position. Standing up, the Australian lifted her opponent into air before dropping her square on her head:

Clearly dazed, Leibrock couldn’t recover in time as Blencowe rained down a barrage of strikes onto her rattled skull, forcing the referee to stop the fight.

A visibly emotional Blencowe rejoiced as tears streamed down her face. This victory got her back into the win column after coming up short against Bellator women’s featherweight champion Julia Budd in December 2017.

For Leibrock, this setback snapped her two-fight win streak.
