The Bellator 284 results are in. The event went down in Sioux Falls, South Dakota 8/12/2022.
The main event of the fight featured what everyone believed would be a grappling match between two high level grapplers. What the fans got was a striking clinic put on by Yamauchi, which concluded in a round 2 uppercut which shut the lights out for Nieman Gracie. Yamauchi continues with three 1st round stoppages in a row.
The co-main event featured a highly anticipated heavyweight bout with one fighter remaining undefeated. Moldavsky vs Mowry left more questions that it answered however, as an unintentional eye poke left the bout a no contest in the first round of the match.
