Bellator 73 Results: Atilla Vegh and Marcos Galvao Earn Title Shots


Bellator 73 PosterBellator 73 took place Friday night at Harra’s Tunica Hotel and Casino in Tunica, Miss., where Attila Vegh and Marcos Galvao each won their respective tournaments to earn title shots.

Attila Vegh made very short work of Travis Wiuff in the Summer Series light heavyweight tournament final, dropping him to the mat and finishing him off with a series of punches just 25 seconds into the fight.

Vegh, with the victory, moves on to challenge Bellator light heavyweight champion Christian M’Pumbu.

It took Marcos Galvao quite a bit longer than Vegh, but he ended up victorious as well.

Galvao and Luis Nogueira battled back and forth for the majority of their 9:20-fight, neither man gaining a distinct advantage, until Galvao rocked Nogueira, leaving him wobbly late in round two.

Galvao quickly took advantage of Nogueira’s weakened state, putting him on the mat and finishing him with a TKO stoppage due to strikes at the 4:20 mark of the second round.

The victory puts Galvao in a title fight against Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas.
