Bantamweight Tournament Quarterfinals: Alexis Vila d. Joe Warren (KO – Round 1, 1:04)

There’s only one thing that matters from last night and that is pictured above.  Congrats to Eduardo Dantas, Ed West, and Marcos Galvao for advancing to the bantamweight tournament semifinals, but this was one of the most stunning moments in Bellator history.  Alexis Vila demolished current Bellator Featherweight Champion Joe Warren in under 90 seconds, brutalizing Warren with some devastating striking punctuated with the knockout shown above.

Vila is one of the top lighter fighters in the world and is my pick to win this tournament, and as I warned last night on Twitter, Zach Makovsky has good reason to be worried if Vila gets through this tournament.  Warren can now defend his Featherweight Title against Patricio Freire in a fight he could easily lose.

Bantamweight Tournament Quarterfinals: Eduardo Dantas d. Wilson Reis (TKO – Round 2, 1:02)

Dantas proved emphatically that he’s a threat in this tournament following his TKO win over Wilson Reis.  This was a surprised as Reis has been one of the most solid fighters at featherweight, but Dantas proved he’s the better man at bantamweight.

Bantamweight Tournament Quarterfinals: Ed West d. Luiz Alberto Nogueira (Unanimous Decision)

Ed West has trained with Don Frye.  Ed West won this fight.

Bantamweight Tournament Quarterfinals: Marcos Galvao d. Chase Beebe (Split Decision)

“We’ll see this one go to a tight decision and I think Galvao will score the win here.”

Hey look!  I really called that!  I’m pleased to see Galvao get the win, since he deserved a bit of retribution after his bogus loss to Joe Warren.  Galvao advances to the tournament semifinals where he certainly won’t get an easy draw.  Vila, Dantas, and West are all super tough and I’m really pumped to see the semifinals of this tournament.

Bantamweight: Jessie Riggleman d. Farkhad Sharipov (Split Decision)

Women’s Catchweight (127 lbs.): Jessica Eye d. Casey Noland (Split Decision)

Featherweight: Frank Caraballo d. Dustin Kempf (TKO – Round 1, 1:19)

Light Heavyweight: John Hawk d. Allan Weickert (TKO – Round 2, 5:00)

Light Heavyweight: Dan Spohn d. Dane Bonningson (KO – Round 1, 1:09)

Lightweight: Joey Holt d. Clint Musser (KO – Round 1, 4:07)
