Bellator 109 took place last night with no less than two tournament finals and a title fight gracing the main card.

In the main event Alexander Shlemenko defended his middleweight title with a first round TKO victory over Doug Marshall, hurting him badly with a body shot, and then targeting the same spot a couple more times until Marshall slumped to the mat.

In the lightweight tournament final, Will Brooks claimed a decisive decision victory against Alexander Sarnvskiy, earning himself the $100,000 prize in the process.

Meanwhile, the welterweight tourmanent also drew to a conclusion with Rick Hawn being declared the winner after he felled Ron Keslar early in the third round with a flush right hand.

In the main card opener, former UFC fighter Terry Etim claimed a dominant win in his Bellator debut, controlling Patrick Cenoble on the mat over the course of 15 minutes.
