Vadim Nemkov becomes new Bellator light heavyweight champion

It was all over in Round 2. Nemkov delivered a powerful right kick to the head, dropping Bader to the canvas. He followed it up with a barrage of strikes all way till the moment when the fight was stopped.

At some point the defending champion almost managed to get back on his feet, yet, as he was getting repeatedly hit to the face, the fight got back on the floor. The challenger wouldn’t stop dominating, continuously landing hands.

Badr was trying hard to cover it up, and yes, got up and started to retreat, but only to get dropped once again, when Nemkov threw left hand from behind. After that the referee has seen enough. The fight was stopped and waved off at the official time stamp of 3 minutes and 2 seconds into the second round.
