Bellator 208: Cheick Kongo pounds out Timothy Johnson in 68 seconds

Riding a seven fight win streak, Kongo has now finishes his last two opponents in devastating fashio — including his opponent Saturday night, Timothy Johnson.

Just one minute into the fight, Johnson shot for a takedown on the chiseled Frenchman. Gaining double underhooks, Kongo was able to get under Johnson and use the burly North Dakotan’s own momentum against him.

Placing his knee on Johnson’s belly, Kongo used hammerfists to pound his opponent unconscious.

RESULT: Cheick Kongo (29-10-2) def. Timothy Johnson (12-5) by TKO (punches) at 1:08 of Round 1
