Bellator 178: Ruth, Fortune Both Now 3-0

A pair of top Bellator prospects were in action Friday night at Bellator 178 in Ed Ruth and Tyrell Fortune.

Ruth finished David Mundell in the second round via TKO, while Fortune picked up a victory over Branko Busick via decision.

“I thought it was a good fight and a solid win for me. There were definitely some areas where I could’ve been faster and I could’ve been sharper,” Ruth said after moving to 3-0 in Bellator. “I felt like I missed a lot of openings, but I’ll go back to work and train some more and be ready to go again soon.”

Both Ruth and Fortune are former college standout wrestlers and are now 3-0 each in their MMA careers.

“I thought it was great for me to go out and get three rounds in,” Fortune said following his Bellator 178 win. “I felt like I utilized my jab and my knees really well. Obviously I m still pretty too, no bumps and no cuts. I dominated the fight.”
