Curran KO’s Sandro to win tournament; complete Bellator 48 results
Pat Curran used a spectacular head kick to knock out Marlon Sandro Saturday night and win the Bellator Fighting Championships Summer Series featherweight tournament.
Four minutes into the second round of what had been a good, back-and-forth fight, Curran exploded with his right leg directly across Sandro’s face, knocking him flat on his back and out cold. Curran pounced and landed three punches on the ground, but those were unnecessary: The head kick was what did it.
