There were plenty of impressive submission victories in the Bellator cage in 2020, and the ViacomCBS-owned promotion has put together a compilation video with the best tapouts of the year.
Among those featured on the best-of list: The promotional debut of Sergio Pettis; a shocking upset from vet Taylor Johnson; a crafty grappling performance by Aviv Gozali; a buzzer-beater from Keoni Diggs; another dominant win for Saul Rogers; another display of John Salter’s dominance on the mat; a rarely seen (and unusually named) submission from Monika Tochlikova; a dominant win for Keri Anne Taylor-Melendez, and more.
But of course, there are other submissions to celebrate from the Bellator cage in 2020, and that’s why the compilation is just one offering. Absent from the video is the Submission of the Year victory for A.J. McKee over Darrion Caldwell. As they say, you leave the best for last.
