Ramazan Kuramagomedov Crowned New Bellator Welterweight Champion at Dublin Event

At the 3Arena in Dublin, a fresh face was crowned king as Ramazan Kuramagomedov (13-0) toppled Jason Jackson (18-5) in a grueling five-round showdown to clinch the Bellator Welterweight World Championship. After the final bell, emotions poured out from Kuramagomedov, who fulfilled his lifelong ambition to hoist the championship belt, sealing the deal with a hard-earned unanimous decision win.

The co-main spectacle had the Irish fans roaring as Derry’s own Paul Hughes (12-1) made a smashing entrance into the Bellator Champions Series. Hughes crushed Bobby King (12-7) with ferocious ground and pound, stopping him dead in his tracks in the second round. Clearly, Hughes isn’t just another fighter; he’s a rising star with a bright future.

Down under, Australia’s Arlene Blencowe (16-10) brought a sudden silence over the crowd by knocking down Sinead Kavanagh (9-7) and locking in a guillotine choke that left no room for escape. The fierce exchange of blows in the first round set the stage, but it was Blencowe’s strategic right hand and swift submission in the second that sealed the deal.

The evening was packed with more action as Dalton Rosta (9-1) edged out Norbert Novenyi (7-1) in a thrilling three-round middleweight clash. Despite being hammered with heavy elbows, Rosta’s unyielding spirit in the final round earned him a majority decision victory, much to the delight of the audience.

Kicking off the main card, Darragh Kelly (6-0) kept his undefeated streak alive and thrilled the local crowd by submitting Mathias Poiron (7-2) with a tight guillotine, sending a loud message to the Lightweight division.
