Maverik Center

————————————————————–

Douglas Lima advanced to the semifinals with a second round TKO victory over Michail Tsarev using vicious leg kicks to chop down his opponent, until Tsarev literally couldn’t get up or walk any longer. The win was his second in a row since losing his title bid against Ben Askren at Bellator 64.

Bryan Baker replaces injured Brent Weedman in the semifinals, who earned a spot by defeating Marius Zaromskis by unanimous decision in the opening round. Baker was a finalist in last year’s welterweight tournament, but was submitted in just 56-seconds by Karl Amoussou.

Ben Saunders earned a hard fought unanimous decision victory over Koffi Adzitso in his quarterfinal match-up. He’s reached this point in the tournament two other times, but has only made the finals once.

Raul Amaya’s opening round fight with Jose Gomes was a wild striking encounter, with Amaya getting the TKO victory in first round. This was Amaya’s second consecutive victory in Bellator since losing to Ben Saunders in his promotional debut back in March of last year.
