Just when you think you’ve seen it all in MMA tonight’s Bellator 83 reminds you that there is always something strange an odd around the corner in our sport of mixed martial arts. Minutes before the featherweight tournament final between Rad Martinez and Shahbulat Shamhalaev took place it was announced the bout would be postponed.
The I-X Center in Cleveland, Ohio was the host for tonight’s Bellator 66 and its jam-packed 10 bout fight card. In front of a packed house and airing on MTV2 and Spkie.com Bellator 66 saw four tournament bouts and was headlined by a lightweight rematch between Eddie Alvarez and Shinya Aoki.
