Fighter Dressed Like Steve Austin Wins By Knockout & Stunners His Trainer

Bellator 219 took place yesterday, and it was an excellent card with several great fights and fighters. The main event saw Brandon Girtz battle it out with Saad Awad in a heated, wild fight.

However, a few fights prior to the main event, there were some fireworks.

David Rickels is a veteran of the fight game. Twenty-six fights and 21 of those are wins. He fought against A.J. Matthews. As well as the fight being a trading fest, ‘The Caveman’ treated us to a brilliant walkout and an even better celebration with his trainer after he had his hand raised.

Rickels came away from the fight with a TKO win over Matthews due to an eye injury Matthews sustained from David.

Rickles has put himself back on a roll since his fight against Michael ‘Venom’ Page. Where he was forced to quit by Page due to being overwhelmed by him, picking up his second win since then.

The fight between the two was an exciting fight, both of them standing there trading strikes, literally blow for some of the bouts. What more could a fight fan want?

What was so good about Rickels’ walkout then? He came out like every other fighter, but he came out dressed as Stone Cold Steve Austin, professional Wrestling superstar.

Stone Cold Steve Austin Tribute

Rickles is one of those fighters who is always fun to watch. His nickname represents his fighting style, barbaric and ruthless. What did you think of the walkout? Would you like to see more walkouts like this in the future? I know I definitely would.

His walkout was not the only pro wrestling reference ‘The Caveman’ put together for his fight. After winning the match and getting his hand raised, he decided to pull a wrestling move on his trainer, who played along with it perfectly.
