It was a rematch over three years in the making, it was a fight that was scheduled, cancelled and re-scheduled, and on Friday at "Bellator 156" inside Save Mart Center, Marcos Galvao (17-7-1) versus Eduardo Dantas (18-4) was also a barnburner of a main event with the Bellator MMA Bantamweight Championship on the line.
Galvao, 33, walked into the arena with the belt in tow, riding high on his memorable victory at the expense of Joe Warren in 2015. But over the course of 25 minutes, Dantas put a halt to any momentum "Loro" had, peppering his former training partner's left-eye with punches, until it swelled shut. Galvao tried valiantly to slow the pace of "Dudu" through grappling, but the 27-year-old did enough to earn the nod from the California State Athletic Commission judges and take back the belt that he claimed was his all along.
