Bellator 259 Prelims

The first shock came when Welshman, Brett Johns suffered a loss in his promotional debut. Stepping in on late notice, Danny Sabatello used his wrestling to dominate ‘The Pikey’, easing to a 30-27 victory. Sabatello progressed to 11-1 and can be a real contender within the bantamweight division.

Next came the European poster girl, Leah McCourt. The Northern Irish featherweight got the victory in the second round, but it was certainly a struggle.
