Bellator MMA

Tywan Claxton just made his professional debut, at Bellator 186 no less, by wiping out Jonny Bonilla-Bowman with a Knockout of the Year worthy flying knee, in just 1:29 into the opening round. Claxton really got all of his weight into the knee, and landed with so much authority, that Bonilla-Bowman seemed to be unconscious on impact, and even went flying backwards in dramatic fashion. It’s kind of a big deal making your professional debut under the bright lights of the Bellator banner, but boy did Claxton ever show up! Can you think of a more impressive finish from a debuting fighter? I for one cannot!
