Bellator 103 results: Rickels TKO's Ambrose

David ‘The Caveman’ Rickels fought JJ Ambrose tonight in his hometown of Kansas. David said that he wanted to kick the crap out of his opponent, and that he did. After his memorable walk out in which he came out with a flintstones car, he finished Ambrose in the third.

In the first round, Rickels was throwing bombs and Ambrose was definitely hurting. A beautiful front kick and right hand by Rickels absolutely rocked Ambrose in the middle of the round. They had some nice exchanges before Rickels was able to get him down and immediately fished for a rear-naked choke. Moments later a beautiful reversal by Ambrose landed him on the top until the round ended.

Round 2 had a ton of great action, with Rickels dominating Ambrose in the stand up. A beautiful liver kick by Rickels rocked and dropped Ambrose in the middle of the round. Rickels tried his best to finish to finish Ambrose, but Big John had not seen enough. Ambrose survived the round, but had easily lost both rounds.

Round 3 was more of the same in the striking exchanges. Ambrose was completely exhausted, and instead of riding out to a decision, Rickels went in for the kill. He was actually momentarily stunned by a left hand from Ambrose, but would not let up the pressure. Rickels stuffed a takedown and got an inverted triangle that landed Ambrose in the turtle position with no where to go. Ambrose was eating body punches and simply could not move. Big John was forced to stop the fight due to the body strikes.
