Round 2
Quinones begins tentatively, while Girtz looks to land wide punches. Both men exchange punches and circle away. Neither man attacks for some time, but the Minnesotan lands a stiff right after what seems like hours of pawing. The Wolfpack product lands an occasional leg kick, but doesn’t seem too committed. Tons of feinting and standing around in a very dry second round.Quinones misses a spinning back fist but immediately fires a high kick which connects, wobbling his opponent at the final bell.

Round 3

Keith Mills


Girtz ground Quinones down for the win.

The Northway MMA product comes in aggressively, looking for a takedown, which he inevitably gets, bulling his foe to the mat. Girtz slices through Quinones’ flimsy half guard and ends up in full mount early in the final frame. The Colombian is eating punches and elbows, but still defending himself. He continues to try to sneak out the backdoor, but Girtz continues to sit on his chest and thump him with short elbows and punches around his guard. The Minnesota native slows his attack, but is still very much in control of the mount. Girtz continues to pound away in workmanlike fashion from full mount until the final bell rescues Quinones.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-8 Girtz (29-27 Girtz)
Jesse Denis scores the round 10-8 Girtz (29-27 Girtz)
Joe Ortiz scores the round 10-8 Girtz (29-27 Girtz)

Official result: Judges Hector Gomez, Rich Green and Eliseo Rodriguez all score the bout 29-28 for the winner by unanimous decision, Brandon Girtz.

Round 1
Vepedo advances quickly, landing punches and throwing a head kick. Bernhard tries to respond with a kick of his own, but slips and lands on the canvas. The energetic Vedepo dives on him, but goes headfirst into a triangle choke. Bernhard locks it up in a hurry and turns his hips to the side, straining to finish the choke.

K. Mills


Vedepo's sub win was wacky and weird.

Vedepo turns and puts his knee on Bernhard's chest and neck, trying to pry himself free. Vedepo is caught up against the fence, trying to escape, but continues to hang on and respond to referee Troy Waugh. Vedepo yanks his head up, and gets a little bit of clearance and breathing room finally. Vedepo puts his left knee and shin across the throat of Bernhard, while still in the triangle, and puts all of his weight down on his foe's neck. Incredibly, Bernhard taps out to Vedepo's ad hoc shin choke, as "The Doctor" was essentially kneeriding his throat. The wacky submission end comes at 3:26 of the first round. Round 1

K. Mills


Souza clubbed Otani out cold.

Otani advances on Souza, feinting with his jab, while Souza tries to throw some capoeira-style kicks to ward him off. Overhand haymakers follow from Souza, but Otani responds with kicks. Unfortunately, one goes low and Souza gets a brief respite. Upon the restart, Otani starts with kicks again, but eats a massive windmill punch from Souza and falls to the mat. Souza tries to follow up, but his wild swinging can't find the target and Otani gets his feet back. Otani begins chopping at Souza's legs with low kicks and Souza attempts a half-moon kick in response, the dramatic technique whizzing wide.

A hard left-right combo lands for Souza and follows up with more caveman-style punches, smashing the former USC linebacker clean to the face. Otani is out cold and referee James Warring intervenes at 2:46 of the first round. The jubilant Brazilian celebrates with a series of backflips, handsprings and a full split.


Round 1
Slack opens up aggressively while his opponent circles away. Moiseichik looks to keep the distance, while “The Heartbreak Kid” gets in close and scores a thunderous slam off of a double leg takedown. The ATT fighter has his butterfly hooks in, but is pounded for a bit before his opponent passes to half guard. Sky gives up his back and helps himself stand along the cage, but trips while trying to escape the clutches of the Reign MMA featherweight; Slack lands a punch in the process. The Richmond, Va., native sits in his guard until the bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Slack
Jesse Denis scores the round 10-9 Slack
Joe Ortiz scores the round 10-9 Slack

Round 2
“The Heartbreak Kid” immediately shoots for a takedown and gets it. The Florida native is working to regain full guard, but the pressure of Slack is too much. The Reign MMA product is landing short elbows, but Sky is doing a good job defending with wrist control. Moiseichik pushes his opponent off for a brief second, but finds himself in side control. He regains guard. “El Chivo Loco” finds himself with his back against the cage, but it doesn’t last long as he attempts to scramble and is pulled away. Slack's punches and elbows are now blooding Moiseichuk, whose plasma is streaming down his face. Slack keeps up the beating until the horn.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Slack
Jesse Denis scores the round 10-9 Slack
Joe Ortiz scores the round 10-9 Slack

Round 3

Keith Mills


Slack's wrestling too much for Moiseichik
to handle.

Slack now looks content to strike in the opening of final stanza. A desperate Moiseichik is throwing, but can’t land anything of significance. They exchange and Slack once again powers the fight to the ground. The ATT product shrimps toward the cage and manages to get to his feet after some time, avoiding any damage. After a few seconds at distance, “The Heartbreak Kid” once again closes in, Moiseichik defends, but the holes in his takedown defense rear their head again, and he’s on his back when Slack changes levels and sucks him down with a double-leg. Slack lands some idle shots on top, just staying busy. Moiseichik cage walks up and attempts his own shot, but is easily stuffed before the final bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Slack (30-27 Slack)
Jesse Denis scores the round 10-9 Slack (30-27 Slack)
Joe Ortiz scores the round 10-9 Slack (30-27 Slack)

Round 1
They exchange early on the feet, with Quayhagen showing no fear of Alexandre's strikes, just as was the cast in the first fight. Alexandre starts to land some leg kicks, but Quayhagen fires punches in return, just grazing. Quayhagen shoots, but suddenly finds himself in a deep guillotine. He postures up to escape, but Alexandre has it tight. The Brazilian continues to wrench the choke, while Quayhagen takes his time, adjusting his posture to escape. Alexandre finally sags his hips, straining on the choke, and Quayhagen gets free. Shockingly, the striker then looks for a triangle. He can't get it, but manages to pull off a half guard sweep that puts the fight back on the feet before the bell. Impressive grappling in the opening round from Cosmo Alexandre.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alexandre

Round 2
Alexandre walks down Quayhagen now, attacking with heavier punches. Quayhagen just blocks a head kick from the Brazilian, and then lands a side kick of his own. Alexandre jabs and then fires a wild right hook that nearly lets Quayhagen spin him to the mat. A sharp one-two clips Quayhagen and stands him up, prompting him to shoot a double-leg and put Alexandre on the mat. The Blackzilian product doesn't waste his time, however, quickly shrimping and getting up the cage wall to his feet. Hard knee lands for Alexandre on the break. Left hook-left kick to the body for Alexandre, who follows with knees and a left hook. "The Good Boy" is finding his rhythm standing. Quayhagen shoots an ugly double, and Alexandre throws him to the mat. Alexandre plays with kicks from Ali-Inoki position before diving into Quayhagen's guard with a wild punch that misses. Alexandre stands back up above him, grabbing his ankle and diving in with another heavy punch. Alexandre passes to side mount before the horn.

Round 3

K. Mills


Alexandre avenged his debut loss with
big improvements in his MMA game.

Quayhagen is still backing up, but offering more with his jabs and low kicks. Alexandre is whiffing on his left hook and not throwing many other strikes as he closes the distance. Body kick and a jab and for Quayhagen on Alexandre, who finally retaliates with a lunging one-two that partially lands. A right followed by a hard left hook stun Quayhagen and the Brazilian explodes with a flying knee. Quayhagen tries to grab on to his opponent, but Alexandre turns around and blasts him with another knee that makes Quayhagen flop to his guard on the ground. Alexandre sets up in Ali-Inoki again, kicking his foe's legs and pressuring him.

Quayhagen manages to hop back to his feet, but it's all academic from here. Alexandre dances around as Quayhagen throws wild kicks until the horn.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alexandre (30-27 Alexandre)
Jesse Denis scores the round 10-9 Alexandre (30-27 Alexandre)

DeRocher doesn't get paid by the hour.


Round 1
The two welterweights touch gloves, and just as soon as the actual fight gets going, DeRocher throws an overhand right that smacks Krahl behind the ear and stiffens him. Krahl goes down in a heap, but is able to recover, kicking his legs at DeRocher. DeRocher follows up on top, shucking Krahl's legs by and landing a half dozen more hard rights that seal the deal. Referee Troy Waugh dives in to rescue the helpless Krahl. The total time is just 20 seconds for DeRocher to wipe out Krahl.
Round 1
Cooper comes in aggressively, after some punches, the welterweight from long Beach shoots in and scores a takedown. The Kings MMA fighter looks for a kimura from half guard, but Cobb is able to stand. Punches are exchanged with “Fudoshin” as an aggressor, putting his opponent on his heels with long crosses. Cobb connects with a hard uppercut as his opponent shoots, but he finds himself on his back courtesy of Cooper's double-leg. Cobb manages to stand, but Cooper chases him down with strikes and lands another double-leg against the cage. “Fudoshin” rains down heavy shots. He lands another big salvo of punches on top and passes to side control, he stands and dives back into his opponent’s guard with punches before the horn.

Round 2
Cobb is working for a big overhand right, pressuring with the power punch but unable to land. Cooper jumps in with a left hook. Both men land simultaneous overhand shots and back up. The Californian gets another takedown and proceeds to hammer away at his opponent, who controls his head to survive. Cooper looks content to sit in his guard and chip away, as Cobb is just hanging on and playing defense, yet is still getting hit with most of what Cooper throws. The longtime Bellator vet keeps up the pounding until the middle stanza ends.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Cooper

Round 2

K. Mills


Volkov's striking overcame Querioz's wrestling.

After much feinting, two hard jabs land for Volkov. Volkov slips a lazy "Spartan" jabs and lands his right. It looks like Queiroz might be tiring, as a lazy double-leg attempt is easily thwarted by Volkov. After many of his jabs are blocked, Volkov throws a pair of hooks that snap Queiroz's head back. Another left hook-right hook for Volkov stuns Queiroz, who stumbles back in slow motion. The Russian follows with two more hooks that put Queiroz on the mat, but Volkov is more than happy to let him stand back up. Upon regaining his feet, Queiroz dives for an ankle, dragging Volkov to mat.

However, Volkov is quickly rescued by referee James Warring's quick standup, and quickly resumes pelting his opponent with long hooks. A body kick and a one-two for Volkov smash Queiroz. He falls back to the fence where Volkov rams a volley of short rights square into his face. Queiroz goes down in a heap just before the horn and referee James Warring hops in to save him. Alexander Volkov's knockout comes at 4:59 of the second round, and he advances to the Bellator Season 7 heavyweight tournament final.

The period ends with Warren throwing punches on top.

Round 2
Like clockwork, the former champion drives Evinger into the cage and slams him to the mat.
