Bellator 202 results: Michael McDonald KOs ex-champ Eduardo Dantas in 58 seconds

Messages recommandés

Michael McDonald made short work of Eduardo Dantas, dropping the two-time champ early and finishing him off with rapid-fire punches.

The two had barely settled into rhythm when McDonald (19-4 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) snuck in a right hand that sent Dantas (20-6 MMA, 10-4 BMMA) to the mat. Before Dantas could recover, the fight was over just 58 seconds after it started.

The bantamweight bout was the co-main event of today’s Bellator 202 show at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla. It aired on Paramount following prelims on MMAjunkie.

McDonald’s joy was shadowed by the delayed realization that Dantas suffered a bad ankle injury during the fight’s ending sequence. Replays showed the Brazilian’s leg folded gruesomely under his body as he fell to the canvas.

Not only that, but the onetime UFC interim bantamweight title challenger was immediately certain he’d suffered a broken left hand, adding another break to a list of them with his right hand.

“After many broken (bones), I don’t know how long I can keep doing this if I break my body after every fight,” said McDonald.

Despite a second straight win and a huge statement win in his new promotion, McDonald declined to call his shot. Other things took immediate priority.

“I just want to get healthy,” he said. “I want to get home to my wife.”

Dantas drops to 0-2 since the loss of his title to Darrion Caldwell this past October.
