Tonight’s Bellator 189 event kicked off with a pair of brutal knockouts on the preliminary card.

In the opener of the card, which takes place at WinStar World Casino & Resort in Thackerville, Okla., with a main card on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie, Gaston Bolanos (2-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) starched Rick Gutierrez (0-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) with a violent spinning back elbow finish.

Just a few minutes later, Mandel Nallo (6-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) entered the cage and picked up the fastest stoppage in Bellator lightweight history, stopping Alec Williams (6-2 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) with a head-kick knockout in just 18 seconds.
