Bellator scores another YouTube hit with Yahir Reyes' spinning backfist

First it was the inverted triangle, and now it's the spinning backfist.

During last week's Bellator Fighting Championships Week 5 event in Dayton Ohio, Toby Imada scored a rare inverted triangle choke, prompting hundreds of thousands of YouTube hits.

During this past Friday's Week 6 event, the rookie fight promotion assured another YouTube homerun with featherweight tournament participant Yahir Reyes' spinning-backfist KO.

Reyes stunning victory earned him a ticket to the eight-man tournament's upcoming finale, where he'll meet fellow finalist Joe Soto, who upset Wilson Reis.

Both fights took place at the Central Pavilion Arena in Robstown, Texas.

Check out Reyes' knockout with the embedded clip. (You can also check out last week's post for Imada's inverted triangle choke.)

Holy Crap that was wicked. It made a nice sound too.


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

Damn, that was sweet. Right on the the jaw. That should make it Reyes VS Wilson Reis in the finals.

Wilson Reis is going to kill this guy. I've called him winning this one from the gate.

Holy sh**! Did you hear the sound of that? That was crazy.

I still like the submission better though.
