Lahat powers his way to another win
MMA NOAD Lahat forced his opponent into submission on his way to an 11th victory in the Mixed Martial Artist featherweight division.
The tough Israeli registered a second-round victory against Lloyd Carter at the Bellator 175 event in Rosemont, Illinois.
Lahat beat Carter who submitted during a ‘choke’ in the second round – Lahat’s sixth career submission.
Born and raised in Alfei Menashe, north-east of Tel Aviv, Lahat moved to America after serving as an IDF paratrooper where he took up the sport in 2008.
A proud Israeli patriot, Lahat, the son of an Orthodox rabbi, enters the ring with a blue-and-white hat with a Star of David on.
A flamboyant character, Lahat, 32, now hopes to appear on Bellator 175’s Madison Square Garden card in June.
He said: “Next for me is New York, baby. The biggest Jewish Israeli com- munity in the United States of America.
“I don’t care who I fight, I just want to be on the card. For me it’s about me. Whoever wants to dance, just ask me.”
