Just a week after UFC produced one of their fight of the year contenders, Bellator MMA produced one of their own.
On July 7, Justin Gaethje made his UFC debut in a back-and-forth war that saw him defeat lightweight contender Michael Johnson by TKO in the second round.
Last Friday, the main event of Bellator 181 had a similar finish when Derek Campos defeated Brandon Girtz by TKO in the second round. Campos vs. Girtz was also a main event fight in the lightweight division, just like Gaethje vs. Johnson.
In the video below, you can watch the entire bloody main event from Bellator 181.
Campos is now on a four-fight win streak in Bellator. His last loss was a TKO loss to Girtz back in 2015.
This was the third fight between Campos and Girtz. Campos won their first battle by winning a unanimous decision back in 2013.
