VIDEO | Sergei Kharitonov destroys Chase Gormley with brutal uppercut

Friday night on the main card of Bellator 175, heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov picked up one of the most devastating and impressive knockout wins in recent Bellator memory.

Kharitonov stepped into the cage looking to bounce back from his recent KO loss to Javy Ayala at Bellator 163, which snapped a 5-fight win streak that saw the heavyweight veteran finish 5 straight opponents. His opponent, Chase Gormley, was looking to extend a 2-fight win streak that saw him pick up back to back split decision wins in 2016.
