Bellator featured the semi-finals of their current middleweight tournament last night which lead to Alexander Shlemenko Vs Vitor Vianna being established as the final pairing.
Shlemenko got the job done after first rocking Brian Rogers with his trademark spinning backfist, but it took further flurries of strikes resulting in a barrage of knees from the muay thai clinch to finish him off by TKO.
Meanwhile Vianna booked his place in the final after flooring Bryan Baker with a big overhand right early in their fight and then following up with hammerfists for the victory.
