Bellator LogoBellator 81 took place on Friday night at the Ryan Center in Kingston, Rhode Island.

The Season 7 Lightweight Tournament finals are now set after the semifinalists battled it out on Friday night.

Polish fighter Marcin Held was relentless, eventually submitting UFC veteran Rich Clementi with a toe hold just past the midway point of round two. The victory earned him a spot in the lightweight finals opposite Dave Jansen.

Jansen claimed his spot in the finals with a narrow split decision victory over Ricardo Tirloni, after the two battled for the full 15 minutes, leaving it to the judges to determine a winner.

Marlon Sandro returned to the Bellator cage with a quick first-round submission victory over Dustin Neace. Sandro locked on a rear naked choke, putting Neace out cold before he could tap out.

Kicking off the main card, Perry Filkins scored a unanimous decision victory over Jonas Billstein.
