Bellator 211 video highlights: Kent Kauppinen stuns Alessio Sakara in first round

Kent Kauppinen almost certainly was overlooked going into enemy territory at Bellator 211.

But Kauppinen (11-4 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) silenced any doubters – and the legions of fans in Italy there to root on home-country hero Alessio Sakara (19-13 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) – when he scored a blistering first-round knockout in the main event.

Check out the highlights from Kauppinen’s quick knockout of Sakara in the video above.

Also on the main card, Domingos Barros (6-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) spoiled Hesdy Gerges’s (0-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) MMA debut with a first-round TKO. Pedro Carvalho (9-3 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) submitted Luca Vitali (11-5 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in the first minute in a fight he took on just 10 days’ notice. Alen Amedovski (8-0 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) delivered the second-fastest knockout in Bellator middleweight history when he put away Ibrahim Mane (7-2 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in 12 seconds. And Kiefer Crosbie (5-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) outworked Orlando D'Ambrosio (7-4 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) for a decision.

Bellator 211 took place Saturday at RDS Stadium in Genoa. The main card aired on Paramount via tape delay and streamed on DAZN.
