Bellator 19: Quick Results

Bellator 19 took place in Texas last night, and we discovered who would be contesting this season’s welterweight final.

In the end it went as many people had expected – Ben Askren and Dan Hornbuckle successfully navigated their semi-final match-ups to earn their spot in the final and put themselves within touching distance of a fight with current welterweight champion Lyman Good.

Askren’s rematch with Ryan Thomas featured no controversy this time round as he used his wrestling to control his opponent en-route to a unanimous decision victory. Meanwhile Hornbuckle once again demonstrated his ability to end fights quickly by requiring only 2 and a half minutes to finish Steve Carl by a kimura submission.

Elsewhere current featherweight champion Joe Soto made short work of challenger Diego Saraiva, landing a vicious elbow in the closing stages of the first round that forced a referee stoppage.
