At Bellator in Texas on Thursday night, Dan Hornbuckle won quickly, submitting Steve Carl in the first round with a keylock.
Hornbuckle has been a force in the past two years, dominating in Sengoku and Bellator. Over the 21 wins in his career, Hornbuckle only has one decision win. The other wins are split evenly between knockouts and submissions.
As we mentioned Thursday night, this win sets up a finals bout with Ben Askren, an experienced wrestler but an inexperienced fighter.
