THACKERVILLE, Okla (WECT) - John Salter got back on track with a victory over Chidi Njokuani at Bellator 210 in Thackerville, Okla on Friday night.
In the final minute of the first round Salter locked in a rear-naked choke and won via submission at 4:32.
“He’s longer than me, he’s faster than me,” Salter told Chael Sonnen during a post-fight interview. “I knew I could stand and survive, but if I took him to the ground, I knew I could dominate him there.”
Salter (16-4) has now won eight of his last nine fights.
