Jornel Lugo retained his unbeaten record with a rather unusual stoppage over Keith Lee at Bellator 265 on Friday Night.
Lugo (7-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) scored his second career submission with a five minute showing, that saw him send Lee to sleep with a rare naked choke in round one of the Bellator 265 Main Card Opener.
Both Fighters kicked off the fight with Jabs and after some good show off on feet, Lugo took the fight to the Mat and was able to work Lee to get the back position. Lugo then worked the arm and locked in the rare naked choke.
Lugo kept the choke locked while Lee struggled to escape however, his hands looked limp while he struggled. Time ran out and at the Horn, Lugo dumped Lee, who remained unconscious on the mat before jumping to his feet but lost his balance and stumbled on his stool, forcing the referee to call off the fight.
After the fight, Lugo expressed interest in returning to action on November 5th fight card which is expected to take place in Dublin and called out Brian Moore to be his opponent.
The fight between Keith Lee and Jornel Lugo served as the Main Card Opener of Bellator 265 on Friday August 20th. The Main Card aired on ShowTime after Prelims on MMAJunkie.v
