Klopp became Liverpool boss in 2016 and has guided them to the Champions League and Premier League title in consecutive seasons. It is the first time the club has been English champions in 30 years and they also claimed their sixth European Cup win. Klopp signed a new deal in December but said he wants to return to Germany in four years’ time. When asked how long he plans to remain in England, he told SWR Sport: “Four years in Liverpool [and then] do nothing for a year.”But in five years, the world can look very different.” During his first season at Anfield, Klopp lost in the League Cup and Europa League finals before losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in 2018.Advertisement However, the club has bounced back from those setbacks to become the reigning English and European champions. Klopp also led Liverpool to the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup this season.

Ion Pascu by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-26, 30-26)Storley put Pascu on notice about his power early, hoisting him up and dropping him with a nasty slam during the first round. Not the way Matt Mitrione wanted the Bellator 215 main event to go at all.Fifteen seconds into the opening round, Mitrione fired off a low left inside leg kick while Sergei Kharitonov was moving. It found Kharitonov’s nether regions and the Russian veteran fell flat on his back in agony as a result of the inadvertent low blow.

Pascu kept trying for the Kimura Grip in the third round but it was to no avail as Storley cruised to the dominant decision victory. “Nobody’s done what I just did to him,” Storley said in the cage after improving to 10-0, “so to everyone that’s booing, that’s Division I wrestling at its finest and nobody could do that at the 170[-pound] weight class.”To the 170-pounders,” Storley continued, “I’m here for real now.”Main card resultsMatt Mitrione vs. Sergei Kharitonov ends in first-round no-contest (accidental low-blow kick)Co-main event: Logan Storley def.

Mitrione continued to apologize after the fight was ruled a no-contest.”It was well-placed,” Mitrione said during the postfight interview of the kick. “The fact that he changed levels and stepped in on the jab, just caught him in the nuts. I feel terrible. Sergei, dude, let’s run it back, obviously. All the fans — I’m so sorry. I know you guys stuck around. I was ready to put on a show, so was Sergei. I’m really sorry, man. I’m really sorry. But let’s go drink some beers.”Mitrione also took to his Instagram account to express his heartfelt apologies once again, calling the disappointing no-contest a “shame” and even stating that he’d be willing to fight another heavyweight or Kharitonov — if he’s able to — on Saturday night during Bellator 216, which is at the same Connecticut venue.last_img read more
