Bellator 263 saw a really scare moment as during the matchup of Gadzhi Rabadanov Vs Daniel Carey, Rabadanov knocked out Carey in violent fashion, hitting many follow-up shots as well. This left Carey unconscious and a stretcher had to be signaled well after refree Frank Trigg has to jump in and get involved. This Bellator fighter death claim was revealed
Khabib Nurmagomedov would come in and help assisting medical staff as they put a brace around the neck of Carey and would then lift him from the ground and to a local medical facility. Nurmagomedov and Carey’s cornerman would then show a sign of respect in the cage which you can see below courtesy of MMA Junkie.
Those in the combat sports world, as well as fans reacted to this development as Corey ‘Overtime’ Anderson stated: “@TeamKhabib is such a legend, his fighter just knocked a guy into convulsions and while the team was celebrating the win. Khabib went over to help the paramedics tend to the opponent.” While @2BlessedHH said: “Khabib is winning fam, heading for that coach of the year. That KO was just fricking beautiful by Gadzhi Rabadanov” Jon Jones recently stunned Bellator Fans in this leaked video
