Bellator free fight: Tyrell Fortune takes out Azunna Anyanwu for fourth straight finish

Tyrell Fortune continued to impress in his fast rise through the heavyweight ranks.

Undefeated at the time, Fortune (8-1 MMA, 8-1 BMMA) was matched up with Azunna Anyanwu at Bellator 233 this past November.

Fortune exercised patience early, dipping in-and-out with feints trying to bait Anyanwu in. In a rather uneventful first round, Fortune was able to use his speed to tag Anyanwu a couple of times on the counter.

In Round 2, Fortune started to put his foot on the gas pedal, eventually clipping Anyanwu with a big overhand right and putting the finishing touches on the ground to secure the stoppage.

Fortune was then matched up against UFC veteran Timothy Johnson at Bellator 239, but suffered his first loss when he was stopped in the first round in a major upset.
