RIZIN FF hasn’t had the best of luck in their cross-promotional bouts against Bellator fighters. But all that changed during the SUPER RIZIN 2 card on Sunday afternoon in Tokyo, Japan when Chihiro Suzuki knocked out Bellator featherweight champion Patricio Pitbull in the first round.

Suzuki vs. Pitbull was a last-minute match up thrown together after A.J. McKee was forced out of the Bellator X RIZIN 2 main event. RIZIN put up their lightweight champion Roberto de Souza to fill in for McKee against Patricky Pitbull, and in exchange Bellator put Patricio Pitbull in against Suzuki for SUPER RIZIN 2.

Suzuki made the best of his opportunity, chasing Patricio down and blitzing him with punches until a big straight right connected, KOing the younger Pitbull brother. Watch the finish below:
