The Fastest Submission in Bellator MMA History

(Curated Story via

Aviv Gozali, an 18-year-old Isreali mixed martial artist, broke the Bellator MMA record for the fastest submission win in the company’s history with a lightning quick heel hook Saturday.

Gozali stood across from the 5-foot-10 Belarusian fighter Eduard Muravitskiy in the first bout on the Bellator 225 show at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and finished his opponent in 11 seconds.

Everything about the submission was timed to perfection.

Gozali ignored his opponent’s gesture to touch gloves so he could slide into a single leg takedown within three seconds. He then jostled for a dominant position on the mat and went to work on the heel.

After Muravitskiy tapped, Gozali ran around the Bellator cage celebrating his win.
