Quoted @tapology

Excluding UFC 2 where there were no judges or scorecards, tonight's Bellator had the most ever fights on a UFC or Bellator card (14) without any going the distance!

History!

Tonight's 14-fight Bellator event was the third fight card in organization history without a decision. The other two, Bellator 36 and Bellator 168, only had 7 and 5 MMA fights respectively. #Bellator225

Bellator 225 breakdown: 14 fights, 14 finishes 7 KOs, 7 submissions 9 first-round stoppages 3 second-round stoppages 2 third-round stoppages. Fastest submission in Bellator history (11 seconds) Crazy night. #Bellator225

That ending was supremely weird and uncomfortable to watch.

14 for 14 finishes at Bellator 225. Sergei Kharitonov defeats Matt Mitrione via second round TKO. Tough one to watch as it seemed like Mitrione’s mouthpiece was really bothering him throughout the fight and distracted him as it kept falling out.

The Bellator 225 main event, Mitrione vs. Kharitonov 2, is about to get underway. This is the 14th and final fight on the card. The first 13 fights all ended in a finish. 14 for 14? Credit to @ekc for pointing that out.

Crazy footage. Reminds me of when fans boo fighters at the end of a bout. Despise that. Gutless, classless behavior by these “fans.”

Also, announcing this at a presser at 10:30 pm et on a Saturday night is damn impressive, too.

So much respect for Andrew Luck. Can’t imagine how difficult this decision must be for a young man, especially considering the money he could be making. Always been impressed with his character from what I’ve seen in interviews. That’s a role model.

Congratulations to @AlejazuLara, who not only was victorious at #Bellator225, but also used her platform to speak out about something she feels strongly about.

Chael P. Laying the smackdown on Yaroslav Amosov on the broadcast. Appreciate that they let him be critical.

Meanwhile, David Rickels is paying homage to the great Genki Sudo on the way to the cage right now.

Filed to ESPN: Andrew Luck has informed the Colts he is retiring from the NFL, per source. There will be a press conference Sunday to make it official, but Luck is mentally worn down, and now checking out.

Wow. Nick Newell wins via first round arm-triangle. He looked great. Well freaking done, Newell. I’d be shocked if Bellator doesn’t sign him long-term now.

Nick Newell is about to make his Bellator debut. One fight deal. 10 minutes from his house. Massive stakes for Newell against the tough Corey Browning.
