The Heavyweight Tournament Final pits Russian Volkov against Bulgarian Ivanov.

"MIGHTY MO" VERSUS THE FORMER

CHAMPION OF BELLATOR'S

HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION, ALEXANDER

VOLKOV FOR A PLACE IN THE

HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT TIMES.

ROUND NUMBER ONE.

THE FIGHT CLOCK BROUGHT TO YOU

BY MILLER LITE, THE OFFICIAL

BEER OF BELLATOR.

>> "MIGHTY MO" DIVING IN FOR THE

TAKEDOWN AND CLENCH.

>> "MIGHTY MO" IN THE WHITE AND

BLUE TRUNKS, VOLKOV IN THE BLUE

TRUNKS.

>> "MIGHTY MO" GO FOR THE

TAKEDOWN THIS EARLY, DIDN'T EVEN

THROW ANY HANDS.

TWO RADICALLY DIFFERENT BODY

TYPES IN THE BELLATOR CAGE.

JIMMY, TWO FINISHES WITH

STRIKING, BUT RADICALLY

DIFFERENT STRIKING STYLES.

>> VOLKOV OUTSIDE RANGY STRIKER,

THROWS A LOT OF STRIKES.

VOLUME STRIKER.

HEAVY PRESSURE FROM "MIGHTY MO."

STILL LOOKING FOR THAT SINGLE

LEG.

>> VOLKOV USING A LOT OF ENERGY

TO GET THE TAKEDOWN AND NOT

GETTING IT.

REACHING, CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF

VOLKOV ON TOP OF HIM.

>> VOLKOV, YOU SEE THE COUNTER

RIGHT HAND.

BIG KNEE.

"MIGHTY MO," JIMMY, OUTSTANDING

STRIKING PEDIGREE.

IN HIS CAREER WON TWO GRAND

PRIXES, BUT HE WANTS TO TAKE

THIS FIGHT TO THE GROUND.

>> SEE A LOT OF THAT IN HIS

FIGHTS, SUBMISSION OVER PETER

GRAHAM, OVER RON SPARKS.

I THINK HE THINKS THAT MIGHT BE

THE DIFFERENCEMAKER IN THE

FIGHT.

BOTH GUYS GREAT STRIKERS.

WANTS TO CHEST THE CHIN OF

VOLKOV.

>> GOOD SEPARATION FROM JOHN

McCARTHY.

>> VOLKOV, HAS RANGE WITH HIS

KICKS.

HE TOLD US THAT, LOTS AND LOTS

OF KICKS FROM THE OUTSIDE.

>> HAS SOME VICIOUS KICKS, AND

THAT'S SOMETHING "MIGHTY MO" HAS

TROUBLE WITH AGAINST PETER

GRAHAM, THOSE WERE LEG KICKS.

"MIGHTY MO" ALREADY BREATHING

HEAVILY.

>> "MIGHTY MO" AGAIN CLOSING THE

DISTANCE.

KNEE!

>> THAT'S IT.

>> A HUGE KICK!

>> THAT IS IT!

A STRAIGHT KNOCKOUT ON THE HEAD

KICK.

JUST LIKE THAT, ALEXANDER VOLKOV

IS THROUGH TO THE HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT FINAL.

>> BANG.

WE KNEW IT COULD END WITH ONE

SHOT.

VOLKOV ENDED IT.

KICK TO THE HEAD, FIRST ROUND

KNOCKOUT FOR THE FORMER

CHAMPION.

THAT'S A BIG STATEMENT TO THE

REST OF THE FIELD, SEAN.

>> MAN.

"MIGHTY MO" KNOWN FOR HIS CHIN.

IT WAS A ONE-SHOT KNOCKOUT.

>> OFF THE CLINCH, A NICE KNEE.

BANG, A LEFT KICK RIGHT TO THE

CHIN.

BIG JOHN McCARTHY ALL OVER IT

GREAT STOPPAGE.

LOOK AT IT HERE.

A QUICK COMBINATION.

IT WAS HAND TO FOOT.

ONE, TWO PUNCHES.

UP WITH THE FOOT.

"MIGHTY MO" COULD NOT SEE IT

COMING.

DOESN'T GET ANY MORE ACCURATE

THAN THAT, SEAN.

IT DOESN'T GET MORE ANY MORE OUT

THAN THAT.

"MIGHTY MO" DOES NOT KNOW WHAT'S

GOING ON.

GREAT STUFF.

>> WATCH THE HEAD SNAP THERE.

OUT COLD, JIMMY.
