Bellator 221 winner Tywan Claxton dishes on 50 Cent shoutout during 'talkative match'

Tywan Claxton didn’t expect James Bennett to be as tough as he was, but that’s what he had to deal with to stay undefeated.

Claxton overwhelmed Bennett with his wrestling, then finally pounded him out in the third round of their featherweight bout to secure the win this past Saturday at Bellator 221 in Rosemont, Ill. The win kept the 26-year-old Claxton perfect at 5-0 in his professional career, all with Bellator. Bennett dropped to 4-2 overall and 1-1 with Bellator.

During the Bellator 221 post-event news conference at Allstate Arena, Claxton talked about just how surprised he was by Bennett’s toughness, them talking to each other during the fight, his shoutout to 50 Cent while he worked against the cage, and more.

You can watch Claxton’s full session with reporters in the video above.
