Bellator 65 Moment – Eduardo Dantas Captures Belt (Fight Video)


In the Bellator 65 main event of the evening, the Bellator Bantamweight Championship was on the line as Philadelphia native and Bellator bantamweight champion Zach “Fun Size” Makovsky made the first title defense of his career in front of family and friends against Season Five Bantamweight Tournament Champion, Eduardo “Dudu” Dantas.

In one of the most dominant performances of his career, Dantas showed why many considered him a Brazilian prodigy. Dantas landed strikes early to the body and head, and appeared to be controlling the action early until Makovsky was able to land a controlled takedown. However, off his back, Dantas was continually threatening with submissions throughout the round.

In the second, Dantas demonstrated just how well rounded he really is. With Makovsky attempting a takedown, “Dudu” hit a beautiful switch that had his opponent on his back. From the top position, Dantas was able to batter Makovsky with strikes, opening him up to a brilliant arm triangle. Despite his best efforts to grip his own leg and avoid the submission, Dantas was able to apply enough pressure to force Makovsky unconscious at 3:26 of the second round.
