Bellator 96 Play-by-Play: Ryan Martinez Vs. Rich Hale

Heavyweight Semifinal Bout: Rich Hale vs. Ryan Martinez- Round 1. They’re exchanging jabs. Hale has a crazy size advantage. 1-2 combo by Hale. Hale leaves his hand out w/ his hand wide open. Not sure why McCarthy isn’t warning him. Martinez leaps in w/ a hook and gets the takedown. Hale throws some nice up kicks, Martinez rains down some heavy shots and puts Hale out!! Hale eyes roll over and nearly has his mouth piece punched out of his mouth as McCarthy jumps in. Holy crap! Hale sits up but he was out.
