Kiefer Crosbie Scores Slick Rear-Naked Choke In Round 1

Kiefer Crosbie brought his talents to the big screen at Bellator Dublin tonight, scoring the first finish of the main-card over Daniel Olejniczak.

Bringing in one of the loudest crowd receptions of the night, ‘Big Daddy’ himself, Kiefer Crosbie turned in a measured but violent performance on the Bellator 217 main-card.

After a methodical opening few minutes, Kiefer turned it on in a big way, stunning his man with a beautiful combination before taking his back and locking in the fight-ending rear-naked choke.

The crowd understandably went crazy upon the announcement that one of their country’s most popular rising stars had come away in victory and in the post-fight, Crosbie was a picture of pure elation.
