Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney announced the tournament semifinals at the Bellator 46 postfight press conference inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Curran and Mann both acquired strong finishes in the tournament quarterfinals, as Curran, 23, ended Luis Palomino's night in the first round with a Peruvian necktie submission, while the 24-year-old Mann halted Adam Schindler brutally, also in the first frame.
Sandro, seen as an early favorite in the tournament, took a well-deserved split decision over fellow Rio de Janeiro native Genair da Silva. The 34-year-old former Sengoku featherweight champion had stopped his previous five victims.
Malegarie, an Argentinian based in Brazil, showed off his dominant grappling, threatening Jacob Devree with a plethora of submissions until getting the tapout with an arm-in guillotine in the third round.view original article >>
