Bellator 277 video: Bobby Seronio III sends San Jose into frenzy with crazy, awkward knockout of Calob Ramirez

·2 min read

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Bobby Seronio III is pegged by some as the next Bellator prospect to watch out of the promotion’s home city.

At Bellator 277, Seronio (2-0 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) knocked out opponent Calob Ramirez (1-2 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) with a series of punches at 2:14 of Round 2. The fight was the seventh Friday on the prelims at SAP Center.

The finish was unusual, awkward, and definitely violent. A beautifully-timed counter straight right-hand sent Ramirez into a place between consciousness and unconsciousness. The dark seemed to overtake the light, as Ramirez dropped to his knees, turned around, and was met with a shot that definitively put him to sleep.

The highlight sent the San Jose crowd into a frenzy, a place Seronio III brought things to in both of his professional outings. The win makes it two-for-two for Seronio, who thrilled fans with a back-and-forth war at Bellator 266 in September against Socrates Hernandez that earned him a unanimous decision. That fight scored him a multifight deal with Bellator, a rarity for a fighter with just one pro fight.
