RIZIN alumnus Karl Albrektsson suffered a loss to Phil Davis at Bellator 231 on Friday Night. It took Davis under three rounds to finish the Swedish fighter.
Davis landed ground and pound from top position until the referee finally stepped in and ended the bout.
“I want another light heavyweight tournament,” said Davis after his victory.
The first round of the fight saw both fighters have a good striking battle, along with a takedown from Davis. The first moment of brilliance from Davis came halfway through the second round, landing an overhand right which floored Albrektsson.
