Bellator Champions Series: Belfast video: Nathan Kelly obliterates opponent with vicious elbow

Nathan Kelly said heading into his fight at Bellator Champions Series: Belfast that he planned to throw some elbows, but he only needed one.

Just 40 seconds into his matchup with Vikas Singh Ruhil, Kelly separated from a clinch near the cage to throw a vicious elbow that landed across Ruhil’s temple and sent him crashing to the canvas. The fight was over just like that, hyping the crowd at SSE Arena.

Check out the finish in the video below (via X):

Kelly, a product of Conor McGregor’s home gym of SBG Ireland, now has won 10 fights in a row after starting his professional career 0-2. He said afterward that his contract is up and hopes to negotiate a new deal.
