Bellator 162 witnessed a resounding victory for the now-unstoppable former TNA World Champion Bobby Lashley , who in the co-feature event of the evening crushed American Josh Appelt and again proved that it is one of the greatest threats of the division Of full weight of the organization.
Despite facing a rival that came from three victories – of which two were by TKO, Lashley knew to dominate the fight at all times and finished to finish it by submission at the beginning of the second round , but if it did not In the first one was because luck was on the side of Appelt (who was on the verge of defeat after a demolition in the final moments of the first round.)
In this way, Lashley reaps an impressive record of 15-2. Not to mention that this is the eighth time in a row that the Kansas native comes out with his arm raised – his latest fall dates back to May 2012 – and he is already talking about reviving the Bellator Full Weight World Championship so he can Be a key contender.
For those who are unfamiliar with the promotion chaired by Scott Coker , it was not until it was the mandate that it ceased to focus solely and exclusively on tournaments of eight participants to crown the champions of their respective categories and later to their Aspirants. This system was used from its inauguration in 2008 until the sale to Viacom in 2011 , and why it could not be celebrated once again for the heavy category.
After the match, Lashley made reference to TNA Impact Wrestling and its current maximum monarch when it charged Eddie Edwards , the man who took the gold a few weeks ago. Undoubtedly a maneuver that should applaud the gladiator and more in view of the financial crisis that attacks the company , a company that remains a priority for the man of 40 years despite its outstanding level shown inside the cage.
