RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Kayani lost to Nathan Jones via Submission (rear-naked choke) at 4:35 of Round 1 at Bellator 179 on Friday in London.
Kayani came out aggressively and tried to land some huge shots. Unfortunately, the only strike that really landed clean was an illegal shot below the belt. After Jones recovered, he scored a takedown. Kayani was mostly lost on the bottom. After struggling to return to his feet, he gave up his back and the submission. Kayani had not lost since 2012 prior to this fight. However, this performance pretty much ensures he will remain on the British circuit for the time being.
