Bellator 44: Quick Results

In last night’s Bellator season four lightweight tournament final Michael Chandler tamed Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire to claim a relatively comfortable unanimous decision win despite losing a point due to three strikes to his opponents groin in the opening round.

Beyond that Chandler also showed quick hands and solid wrestling enroute to victory, and as a result picked up the $100,000 prize-money and will get a shot at current 155lb champion Eddie Alvarez next.

In the other big fight on the card middleweight champ Hector Lombard again displayed his deadly striking technique as he produced a third round KO finish over Falaniko Vitale with a single big right hand.
