Jorge Masvidal protégé wins via flying knee at Bellator 252

Roman Faraldo fought last night at Bellator 252. It was his first time fighting for the promotion, and his fourth time fighting professionally. Faraldo works under the same striking coach as Jorge Masvidal, Paulino Hernandez.

It was a Bellator debut to remember, as Faraldo not only extended his record to 4-0, but did so with a signature Jorge Masvidal flying knee. Better yet, he did it on Masvidal’s birthday. He has now won all four of his bouts via KO/TKO. You can see the knockout below.

Faraldo spoke to the media afterwards.

“Obviously anyone who knows anything about Jorge knows his striking coach, Paulino Hernandez. That’s my man. I’m under him. I look at him more as a guy that I can look to and ask for advice. It’s pretty cool that I finished the fight that way.”

Masvidal later retweeted the KO.

“My boy Roman Faraldo doing the good work.”
