Bellator 185 results: Kristina Williams bloodies Heather Hardy for TKO upset


UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Kristina Williams put on a clinic against the heavily favored Heather Hardy, leaving the unbeaten pro boxer a bloody mess with a thrashed nose in the second round.

Williams (1-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) got a TKO when the cageside doctor shut down the fight at the 2:00 mark of the second. A shin to the face left Hardy gushing blood worse than she was before the kick, and Williams had a big upset in her pro MMA debut.

The women’s flyweight bout was part of the main card of Bellator 185, which took place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The main card aired on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.

Hardy came out slugging with kicks and punches. But 40 seconds in, Williams answered back and rocked hardy along the fence. Williams tried to work kicks and landed to the body.

Midway through, when Hardy tried to grab some momentum, Williams took it right back with a barrage of elbows to the head. Not long after, they continued to swing and kick for the fences, and Williams landed a kick to the face. Hardy was bleeding from the mouth and nose when she went back to her corner after the first and knew she was in a fight again.

Early in the second, Williams was able to trip Hardy to the canvas, then landed several punches to her bleeding opponent when she got back to her feet. A minute into the round, they slugged it out some more – and Williams got the better of it once again.

Thirty seconds later, Williams landed a shin right to Hardy’s nose and wobbled her in a major way. The blood started gushing enough that teh doctor was called in and it took him no time at all to shut the fight down.
