Check out the video highlights from Bellator 116, including a pair of first-round finishes in the heavyweight tournament semifinals.

In the main event, Blagoi Ivanov (11-0 MMA, 6-0 BMMA) landed a perfect Sambo throw against Lavar Johnson (18-9 MMA, 1-2 UFC), then latched on to his left arm and forced a tap from an Americana.

In the other semifinal, Alexander Volkov (21-4 MMA, 5-1 BMMA) added a spectacular knockout finish to his resume with a first-round head kick to stop Siala-Mou Siliga (6-3 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) and forge a date with Ivanov in the final later this season.

Earlier on in the card, Adam McDonough (11-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) kept his undefeated record in tact with a one-sided thrashing of Nathan Coy (14-5 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) and a second-round knockout finish to reach the welterweight tournament final. Brandon Halsey (6-0 MMA, 4-0 BMMA) took care of Joe Pacheco (7-2 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) to reach the middleweight final against Brett Cooper. And Joey Beltran (15-10 MMA, 1-1 UFC) sent Vladimir Matyushenko (27-8 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) out of his career on a losing note with a third-round choke.

Friday’s event aired on Spike TV from Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif.
