A protege of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Rabadanov made a successful Bellator debut on Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. with a ferocious counter left hand that dropped his opponent Daniel Carey, leading to his 11th career finish.
Check out the highlight of the stoppage below:
Rabadanov showed impeccable timing throughout the 3:57 of action using effective counters, along with a great use of length. Carey was able to eat a few big shots, but after throwing a leg kick, the combat sambo fighter landed the quick left that was the beginning of the end for Carey.
With the victory, Rabadanov has now won consecutive fights and is victorious in eight of nine, which includes a win in his lone PFL appearance against UFC veteran Steven Siler.
