An action-packed middleweight fight took center stage inside the Bellator 218 cage as Anatoly Tokov survived an early scare to submit Gerald Harris.

Harris smoked Tokov with a looping left hand early in round one. The Russian dropped like a ton of bricks but somehow surveyed the barrage of punches thrown by the American (via Twitter):

Tokov did recover, and in the second round started to pick up the pace. Tokov ultimately sank in a 10-finger choke and force the 39-year-old Harris to tap.

The win makes it four straight inside the Bellator cage for Tokov.

The Russian didn’t miss his opportunity to call for a title fight in his post-fight interview with Big John.
