Video: Rick Hawn's vicious finish of Ricardo Tirloni at Bellator 62

Former Bellator Welterweight (170 pounds) tournament finalist Rick Hawn made the dip down to Lightweight (155 pounds) for the first time ever last night (March 23, 2012), entering the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's season six lightweight tournament.

In the quarterfinals, Hawn collided with talented Brazilian Ricardo Tirloni at the Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas, in the Bellator 62 main event of the evening.

The former American Olympic Judo team member stalked his opponent from the opening bell, walking through monster leg kicks that apparently were unable to slow down Hawn's aggression. Then, midway through the first round, Hawn connected with a huge right hand that dropped Tirloni like a sack of suds.

Hawn quickly pounced and unleashed a furious barrage of strikes that made Tirloni go stiff and his eyes roll back into his head. One of the shots actually popped Tirloni back into consciousness, but it was clear that the lights were on, but nobody was home.
