Bellator 105 boxBellator was all over the MMA interwebs today with the news regarding their November 2nd fight card and tonight’s Bellator 105. During the night’s main card on SPIKE, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney reiterated that news to the fans prior to the Bellator 105 lightweight semifinal round. Speaking of those semifinal bouts, four fighters looked to advance to the final and earn the coveted title shot.

In his third Bellator tournament, Alexander Sarnavskiy surprised the Brazilian Ricardo Tirloni with a first round submission to punch his ticket to the finals. The submission was set up by a lightning quick spinning back fist that put Tirloni on his back and softened up the BJJ black belt. Sarnavskiy advances to the tournament finals for the first time but had to wait to find out who his opponent would be.

The Bellator 105 main event was the rematch between Will Brooks and Saad Awad to see who’d be that guy to face Tiger Sarnavskiy. Awad caught Brooks coming in with a big punch in their first bout but he made sure that didn’t happen this time around. Brooks picked Awad apart from the outside and when they did get close Awad found himself on his back. If wasn’t flashy like the other tournament semifinal but it was effective. Brooks grinded his way to a unanimous decision and a future date against Sarnavskiy.

Other Bellator 105 highlights included Mighty Mo earning his first career submission, newcomer Eugene Fadiora dominating and Desmond Green opening up a massive deep cut on the forehead of his opponent that forced a stoppage. Check out the complete Bellator 105 results below:
