Bellator stole Alex Polizzi out of the UFC’s hands and looked impressive over former Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Rafael Carvalho in his Bellator debut.
Rare for a newly signed Bellator prospect to get matched up against a top Bellator fighter. However the former LFA Light Heavyweight Champion took advantage of the opportunity and defeated Rafael Carvalho.
“Excellent opponent, and I know we’re getting to higher elite levels,” Polizzi later added. While he said he wasn’t exactly disappointed, he knows he can do even better. “Come Monday, we’re back at it in the gym, we’re looking back at this Carvalho fight saying ‘hey, we goofed up here, hey, we should have done better here,’ and we’re just looking at building on where we’re already at.”https://cagesidepress.com/2020/09/13/bellator-245-alex-polizzi-snooki/
“I’m happy that Bellator gave me a shot to be in a match like this,” Polizzi said. “Not everybody gets the chance to use the skills they’ve developed. My skills just happen to be hurting people, and I’m glad to be able to use them.”https://www.beloitdailynews.com/sports/polizzi-remains-undefeated/article_e097962c-1ac0-544c-a48c-5edf44e79d59.html
