18. Patchy Mix silences Raufeon Stots in just 90 seconds

From Bellator 295 - 2023

So much was on the line at Bellator 295.

It was the finale for the Bellator Bantamweight World Grand Prix Tournament and it pitted the reigning (and defending) interim champion Raufeon Stots against the rising star in Patchy Mix.

Stots had earned the interim title after his friend and teammate, Sergio Pettis, was injured and had to leave the Grand Prix. Stots defended the title when he beat Danny Sabatello at Bellator 289 but wasn't able to carry it throughout.

In Honolulu, Hawaii Stots ate one of the most brutal knees we've ever seen and dropped limp on the canvas at just 1:20 into the very first round.
