Bellator 113 took place last night with Emanuel Newton becoming the undisputed light-heavyweight champion with a split decision victory over Attila Vegh.
The two had fought before in 2012, with Newton coming out on the wrong end of a split decision verdict on that occasion, but he got his revenge this time out with a somewhat cautious approach, managing to oustrike his opponent without ever really going all-out for a finish.
Newton will now defend his title for the first time against the winner of Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson Vs ‘King Mo’.
Elsewhere on the main card lightweight tournament action was on the agenda, with Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire, Marcin Held, Derek Campos and Derek Anderson all making their way to the semi-final stages.
