Bellator 284: Goiti Yamauchi puts Neiman Gracie away in second round

Bellator welterweight Goiti Yamauchi is rolling.

Yamauchi scored a convincing second-round knockout of Neiman Gracie in the main event of Bellator 284 at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota Friday night.

Yamauchi (28-5-0), 29, started off fast, hurting Gracie in the first round with his striking and then stifling him with his grappling. In the second round, Yamauchi connected on an uppercut that dropped Gracie where follow up strike forced referee Jason Herzog to wave off the fight at 3:58.

The win gives Yamauchi a three-fight win streak, while Gracie has now lost two straight and three of his last four contests.
