Cheick Kongo kicked off his Bellator career with a TKO win over Mark GOdbeer

Visala, California – Two UFC veterans has split their debuts in the latest event of Bellator that was held this Friday in Visalia Convention Center, Visalia California. Bellator 102 has featured a pair of heavyweight and middleweight semifinal bouts as well the bantamweight tournament finals.

The two UFC veterans, Cheick Kongo and Lavar Johnson were expected to blow out their opponents but only one of them earned a win in their promotional debut. Cheick Kongo (19-8-2) has won his Bellator debut by stopping Mark Godbeer (8 – 2) in the second round of their semifinal bout. After an uneventful first round, Kongo slipped a haymaker and moved around to his opponent’s back. He then delivered his patented vicious knees in the clinch when Godbeer attempted to reverse the position. The overmatched Englishman tried to cover but he later crumpled in the floor due to the strikes. Big John McCarthy stopped the fight at 2:04 mark of the round. The win advances Kongo into the finals where he will meet Vinicius Queiroz, the man who has just beaten his fellow UFC veteran Lavar Johnson.
