The announcement of a gathering of knockout artists at Bellator London, Galore Bofando and Richard Kiely, was met by a lot enthusiasm final week, however the self proclaimed “Face of Bellator”, Kiely, is assured that he can handle to keep away from the spectacular spinning strategies of Bofando after they conflict on June 22.
In look on Eurobash, Kiely heralded Bofando— who he known as “Galore Buffoon” all through the interview—as “the second-best striker in Bellator”, however forecast knockout to “The Paranormal” would finish their contest.
“That is going to steal the present,” Kiely advised Eurobash. “To be honest to Galore Buffoon, I’ve him up there because the second-best striker in Bellator [after me], forward of Michael ‘V**ina’ Web page and Pauline Daley. It’s going to be a cracking struggle, sadly he’s going to get knocked out as effectively. It will memorable, it’s going to explosive, however it’s going to finish in a knockout, mark my phrases. Galore Buffoon will find yourself together with his face on the canvas.”
Each embellished champions of their respective putting disciplines, Kiely famous how he believes that the spinning strategies of Bofando are solely intimidating to fighters who’ve little expertise within the putting arts. He insisted that Bofando can be punished if he makes an attempt to land any acrobatic assaults on him.
“Everybody he fights doesn’t have a deal with on how he fights, however I do. He throws numerous spinning sh*t, as Nate Diaz would say. It’s hit and hope, whereas mine are calculated; I set issues up. If he throws any of that sh*t at me I’m going to punch him proper by his chest. He’s going to know. Don’t be stunned if the very same factor occurs to him that occurs to each single fighter; he’s going to really feel the primary jab after which immediately this world class striker will flip right into a grappler,” he defined.
“I’m simply as quick as him,” Kiely continued. “Granted, he does look spectacular to the untrained eye, but when he tries that with me I’m going to punch him proper down the middle, proper to the throat. And we’re going to see how he offers with somebody who can do precisely the identical issues as him. I don’t must throw all that spinning sh*t in fights; as soon as is sufficient. He can throw all that type of stuff at people who find themselves intimidated by it, however that doesn’t faze me, I’ve seen it for years. He’s going to get timed off that after which he’s going to look very, very silly.”
Most MMA observers will bear in mind Bofando from his weird knockout of Kiely’s SBG secure mate Charlie Ward at UFC Glasgow. Kiely referred to Bofando’s sole UFC win as a “fluke” when the subject was broached.
“It wasn’t a counter to a throw, it was a shrug off in panic. It simply so occurred to be a fluke that paid off for him. He went round claiming it like he’s some type of grappler extraordinaire,” mentioned Kiely.
“He’s all attribute based mostly. He’s an explosive man completely, he simply tries to throw all of it on the market within the hopes that he doesn’t get caught with something himself. He caught Charlie awkwardly and Charlie landed on his head, that’s what occurred. You heard the hold forth that, it will’ve occurred to anybody.”
If all goes in keeping with plan for Kiely, he expects to develop into a distinguished fixture on Bellator’s American occasion.
“If Bellator have any cop on, as quickly as I knock out Galore Buffoon they’re going to ebook me into the massive identify, massive cash fights on massive American playing cards. It’s so simple as that. They want me as a result of individuals watch me whether or not they like me or not. Whether or not they’re trying to see me get knocked out or they wish to see me knocking somebody out, I convey eyes contained in the cage and out of doors the cage.”
