UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Mandel Nallo’s first-round knockout win at Bellator 255 this past Friday may be worthy of a highlight reel.

But the 31-year-old Canadian, who trains at Tristar Gym in Montreal under the tutelage of longtime Georges St-Pierre coach Firas Zahabi, said his Superman punch, in reality, wasn’t anything of the sort.

Nallo (8-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) shut down Ricardo Seixas Filho (9-3 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) with what everyone presumed was a Superman punch at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. But the fighter affectionately known as “Rat Garbage” said the punch was really just bad technique on his part – and it happened to look good.
