Bellator 218 took place last night and we’ve got the results from all the fights below.
In the main event of the evening, Emmanuel Sanchez claimed a second victory over Georgi Karakhanyan in their featherweight rematch.
Sanchez had won their previous meeting two years ago by majority decision, but this time the judges were more certain in the outcome, awarding him a unanimous decision verdict (29-28 x3), though it was another closely contested fight in which Karakhanyan did land some important takedowns, but didn’t fully capitalize on them and allowed his opponent to outstrike him and get on top at key moments of the fight.
Meanwhile, in the co-main event Valentin Moldavsky secured a unanimous decision victory (29-27 x3) over Linton Vassell, with extended periods of top control enabling him to seize control of the fight in the final 10 minutes.
