Bellator 210: John Salter chokes out Chidi Njokuani on short notice

Middleweight John Salter (16-4-0) walked into Bellator 210 on short notice and submitted Chidi Njokuani (18-6-0) in the first round in the main event of Oklahoma’s Bellator 210 Friday night.

After some initial success by Njokuani on the feet, Salter took the fight to the ground and locked in a rear-naked choke which produced a tap 28 seconds from the bell.

Salter was substituting for Melvin Manhoef, who pulled out Nov. 1 with an injury.
