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.
