Bellator 95

Season eight for Bellator is now in the books following tonight’s Bellator 95 from Atlantic City, NJ. After two tournament finals last week, tonight’s main card featured two more tournament finals as well as a featherweight title fight.

Bellator 95 opened with eight preliminary bouts that streamed live online and was anchored by the former welterweight champion Lyman Good. His bout with Dante Rivera closed out the preliminary card with a unanimous decision for the former champ.

Rick Hawn opened the Bellator 95 main card against former WEC and UFC fighter, Karo Parisyan. The two Judo based fighters canceled each other out so the fight would be decided with the heavy leather. Parisyan was looking to get back into the game but Hawn had a different idea when he found his range in round two and finished the fight.

Up next were the two tournament finals. In the middleweight division and looking to earn a title shot against Alexander Shlemenko, were Brett Cooper and Doug Marshall. The Rhino wanted to knock the beard of Cooper off but instead just knocked him out cold. Before the featherweight title fight, Frodo Khasbulaev and Mike Richman took to the cage for the featherweight tournament final. Their fight would last much longer than the first tournament bout of the night and in the end it was the Russian earning the decision.

Closing out the night and the season was featherweight champion Pat Curran against Shahbulat Shamhalaev. Things started out really slow and then out of nowhere the champion took the fight to the ground, jumped on Shamhalaev and choke the challenger out cold. What a way to end the night and the season!
