When he got arrested earlier this week, Jon Jones told the officers he was going stir crazy and had to get out for a drive.
And while we can’t really get behind how he went about trying to solve the stir crazy problem, we can pretty much understand it.
Bellator has a potential solution for MMA fans to deal with their stir craziness in a slightly less dangerous way. Saturday at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT), the promotion will air Bellator 225 in its entirety.
Bellator 225 took place Aug. 24, 2019, in Bridgeport, Conn. – the promotion’s debut there after holding all its previous Connecticut events at Mohegan Sun Arena on tribal grounds. But what truly made the event memorable was that all 14 fights on the card ended with finishes.
It was the first time in Bellator history that no fights on a card went the distance. The judges presumably got paid, but they never were utilized. Only two fights on the prelims even went to the third round, but both ended with submissions – including one with just 13 seconds left, when Thiago Rela tapped to Jon Manley’s rear-naked choke. Had Rela held on just a little longer, we might not be talking about this special broadcast.
You can relive the entire card – nine prelims and five fights on the main card – Saturday in the live-streamed video above. To make things even better, there is an equal balance of seven knockouts and seven submissions to check out.
