Bellator 146 took place last night and we’ve got all the results for you below.
In the main event Melvin Manhoef emerged victorious against Hisaki Kato courtesy of a highlight reel KO in the opening round.
The two engaged in some frenzied toe-to-toe exchanges prior to the finish with big punches flying in all directions, threatening to end the fight at any moment. Manhoef looked hurt at one stage, but never stopped swinging for the fences and that paid off big-time 3.43mins into the round when he connected with a thunderous left hook that flattened Kato, handing him the knockout finish.
In the main event Brandon Girtz got the job done even quicker, earning a KO win over Derek Campos in just 37 seconds after dropping him with two right hooks then finishing up with hammerfists on the mat.
