Sidney Outlaw was suppose to get a title shot tonight, but champion- Patricky Pitbull pulled out due to injury. Instead of waiting Outlaw chose to take on former Rizen champion- Tofiq Musayev. It was a mistake. He was rocked 20 seconds in and finished with just 27 seconds down in the clock.
The big winner here may be Usman Nurmagomedov who called for the next title shot, with the number 1 fighter losing he may be next in line. But that’s not to say that Musayev won’t get the next title shot even though this was his debut. Musayev also has a win over the current Bellator 155 champion- Patricky Pitbull, he did it in Rizen.
Now Bellator has a decision to make which one gets the title shot, and if Pitbull isn’t ready to fight these two (Nurmagomedov and Musayev) could be paired up for an interim title
