Dalton Rosta continues his rise up the rankings at Bellator 231 over the weekend, as the Pennsylvania native moved to 2-0 with a second round TKO victory over Claude Wilcox (1-1).

Rosta was dominant throughout the fight, proving to be a mismatch against the late replacement Wilcox. Still just 23 years old, it appears as though Bellator is grooming him to eventually be a contender in their deep 205-pound division.

“He has a strong chin that’s for sure,” Rosta told MMA Junkie after the fight. “I hit him with a couple of heavy shots and he didn’t go down. A couple of them I caught him on, I dazed him and hit him with two or three more right after that and he didn’t fall. I was a little surprised about that.

“Coming back off of that, I feel like I did well. Transitioning from my wrestling to my striking and putting everything together pretty well to get the win.”
