Bellator Results: Cole Konrad Defeats Eric Prindle For Heavyweight World Championship

Minnesota's Cole Konrad defeated Eric Prindle on Friday night in New Orleans to keep the Bellator Heavyweight World Championship. The fight headlined a long list of battles for the event, but anyone blinking may have missed it.

Konrad avoided a big combination from Prindle to move inside and dump him on his back. From there, Konrad used a Kimura on his opponent. Prindle groaned in pain as Konrad torqued his arm. In a flash, Prindle tapped out. Konrad was declared the winner via submission just one minute into the first round of the fight.

The win moves Konrad to 9-0 as a mixed martial artist. He won the heavyweight title at the first Bellator event in 2010. This was his first defense of that title.

As a wrestler with the Minnesota Golden Gophers, Konrad won two NCAA titles with a career record of 155-13.
