MMA: Bellator 183-Daley vs Larkin Dave Mandel-USA TODAY Sports

The co-main event for Bellator 183: Henderson vs. Pitbull saw Paul Daley pick up a major knockout win over Lorenz Larkin in the second round of their welterweight affair. The opening round saw a lot of respect and a little bit of feeling out, as each competitor was testing out what the other man was capable of. Come round 2, Daley shot in for a couple takedowns, shocking everyone, and was able to tie up Larkin in the clinch. Upon a break, Daley swung a spinning backfist that clipped Larkin, behind the ear, and followed up with a bodacious left hook that sent his opponent into a standing daze. Daley proceeded to uncork a 3 piece punching combo that sent Larkin crashing to the mat, and followed up with some academic ground strikes before the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
