Melvin Manhoef (pictured) couldn’t have dreamed of a better showing in his Bellator MMA debut. Speaking of going to sleep, Manhoef had Doug Marshall face-planting with a right hook to the dome in the opening round of their scrap.
Do the cool kids still use the hashtag #Planking? Regardless, that’s exactly what Marshall was doing in last night’s main event.
Bellator president Scoot Coker said Manhoef will now meet the winner of next week’s title tilt between middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko and Brandon Halsey.
Bellator 125 took place Friday inside Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.
