In a highly anticipated matchup at Bellator 298, Logan Storley showcased his skills and dominated Brennan Ward in an impressive performance. Storley, who was looking to bounce back from a title unification loss, made a statement with a TKO stoppage in the second round.
The fight took place at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D., with Storley entering the Bellator cage in his home state. Despite facing a dangerous striker in Ward, Storley was able to take control of the fight and dictate the pace.
From the beginning, Ward’s left jab posed a challenge for Storley. However, Storley’s takedown defense held up well, and he eventually found an opportunity to take top position in the first round. He maintained control on the ground, pinning Ward to the canvas.
In the second round, Ward continued to rely on his jab, but Storley remained patient and capitalized on another takedown. Frustrated with his inability to escape Storley’s control, Ward resorted to trash-talking in an attempt to goad Storley into a stand-up brawl. However, Storley stayed focused and unleashed a barrage of powerful punches from the top position.
Unable to break free, Ward succumbed to Storley’s relentless assault, prompting the referee to step in and stop the fight via TKO. Storley credited his team for helping him refocus on his strengths as a fighter, and his performance at Bellator 298 proved that their efforts paid off.
While Storley is determined to earn another shot at the welterweight title, he acknowledges that it’s not a make-or-break situation for him. He is willing to do whatever it takes to work his way back to a championship opportunity.
On the other side, Ward’s three-fight stoppage winning streak came to an end. After returning from a lengthy layoff, Ward had secured impressive victories in his previous bouts, all ending in stoppages in the second round.
