Ciaran Clarke (6-0) defeated Rafael Hudson (5-4) via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:50 of round three at BELLATOR 285.
During his post-fight interview, Clarke had this to say about his win:
“To be honest, I envisioned a cleaner fight, but he was tough. It’s the game we play. I’m meant to improve, I know… trust me, 15 minutes is a long, long time. I could see it in his eyes; I could feel it. I just keep faith in the Lord. I knew that the opportunity would come, and went he threw the knee, and I threw the jab, it felt good to come back in the third round.”
