The savvy Amoussou will now get a shot at dethroning Bellator’s current welterweight kingpin, Ben “Funky” Askren. This couldn’t have played out better, as Amoussou’s skill set could provide the biggest challenge to date for the wrestling phenom.
Unfortunate Donkey Kong hammerfist to the back of Bears’ head, but nobody seemed to care. Yeah he was pretty much (completely) done at that point, but it should have been acknowledged in one of the gajillion replays, instead of Sean Wheelock just calling it a hammerfist.
Saunders did what you’re supposed to do with a gimme fight. Destroy your opponent in quick order. Killa B back in the win column after losing a unanimous decision to Bryan Baker in the WW tournament semifinals back in May.
other notables from the event…
-Attila Vegh won a very questionable split decision over Emmanuel Newton.
