That’s three in a row for Robson.
Robson Gracie Jr. checked in for his third fight with Bellator on Nov. 14, defeating Ameer Bashir in the first round by submission as a crowd in Tel Aviv, Israel cheered him on. Gracie, still a relative newcomer in MMA despite his pedigree, was featured on the undercard.
Here’s the triangle, which came after some brief standup, in case you missed it:
Also featured from a different fight family lineage was Aviv Gozali, son of longtime MMA headliner and black belt Haim Gozali. Gozali faced fellow lightweight Zaka Futallazade, similarly making short work of his opponent with an anaconda choke in the first round:
Gozali’s father was there to see the win–because he was also on the card, headlining against Artur Pronin in what is believed to be his retirement performance. After winning by heel hook against the much younger Pronin, Haim took the mic and declared “that’s it guys,” confirming “The Israeli Batman”‘s departure from pro fighting as his son’s winning streak continues.
