Bellator 68 PosterTwo of the top featherweights in the world met inside the Bellator cage as Marlon Sandro and Daniel Straus fought with the winner claiming the Bellator Season 6 Featherweight Tournament Championship and a $100,000 payday at Bellator 68 on Friday night in Atlantic City, N.J.

Known for his aggressive striking and exceptional cardio, Straus showed early on why he made it to the finals of the Featherweight Tournament. While Sandro appeared hesitant at times, Straus was constantly moving forward and pushing the action for the duration of the fight. Landing the crisper strikes, Straus found a way to control Sandro while both striking and in the clinch. After three entertaining rounds, a new tournament champion was crowned as Daniel Straus walked away with the unanimous decision victory.
