Elina Kallionidou bounced back to winning ways and that she did in styles, scoring a highlight Reel first round Heel-Hook submission victory over Petra Castkova in the preliminary Card of Bellator 267 on Friday Evening at the SSE Arena in London.
The fight was part of the Preliminary Card, which aired on MMA Junkie after-which the Main Card gets its turn on Showtime.
Castkova, who snapped a two fight losing skit with the victory was very quick to take the fight to the canvas. Kallionidou dropped to her back and initiated attacks to Castkova’s legs and when she found the opportunity to lock the heel hook and took it. Wasn’t long before she got the tap.
Before the win, Kallionidou lost two fights in a row, first to Bec Rawlings and Bruna Ellen and the victory over Castkova is the first since signing with Bellator MMA.
