Bojangles Coliseum


Eduardo Dantas was allowed to take a fight outside of the promotion last August, but that turned out to be a bad decision. He was upset in stunning fashion, knocked out by Tyson Nam in the first round for a Shooto Brazil event. The loss ended a seven fight win streak, which included Dantas’  rise to become Bellator’s bantamweight champion.

Marcos Galvao earned a shot at Bellator gold winning the sixth season’s bantamweight tournament. He earned unanimous decision victories over Ed West and Travis Marx in the opening rounds to secure his spot in the finale where he stopped Luis Alberto Nogueira in the second round via TKO.
