Adam Piccolotti's last fight was a dud. Far away in Milan, Italy, the Half Moon Bay fighter tapped out in the second round. But last week, in Southern California, Piccolotti ensured that wouldn’t happen again. 

Piccolotti, 34, reversed course when he dispatched Mandel Nallo with a rear-naked choke hold with 4:26 left in the third round during Bellator 293, which took place at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula on Friday.
