Raufeon Stots didn’t need a pep talk from his coach as he did it all by himself on Bellator
Bellator was back with live action after a long break and one moment caught the eye of many. This came from Bellator Bantamweight star Raufeon Stots.
The 31-year-old was up against Cass Bell and got the win thanks to a rear-naked choke. However, the win wasn’t the important bit. Stots decided to motivate and hype himself up in between rounds.
Normally, a fighters does things like this before entering the cage. However, Stots took a different approach and could be heard saying: “I dominate, excite, and finish fights.”
He didn’t need a coach to give him a pep talk as moments later he got the submission win over his rival.
Stots certainly seemed to be in the zone, and this was certainly something epic that caught the attention of many.
To hype himself up between rounds, @RaufeonStots chanted "I dominate, excite, and finish fights."

Stots continues his winning streak
The 31-year-old has now won his fifth fight in a row and there seems to be no stopping him. Stots has fought in many promotions but hasn’t tried his luck in the UFC yet.
He now holds an MMA record of 13 wins and one loss. That one loss came against Merab Dvalishvili which came in Ring of Combat.
It will be interesting to see what is next for Stots but his motivational speeches certainly were a hit from Bellator.
The 31-year-old believes he can become a future champion and if he keeps speaking like this in the coming months, nothing can stop him.
