Bellator 128 Results and GIF Highlights: Warren Edges Dantas, Page Defeats Burrell

Another Friday night, another Bellator card–Bellator 128, to be exact.

This card wasn’t the best Bellator has put on, but it was good enough. Alexander Sarnavskiy took on pornographic actor Dakota Cochrane. Bubba McDaniel fought Emiliano Sordi. In the co-main event, highly touted prospect Michael Page met Nah Shon Burrell. Eduardo Dantas defended his Bellator bantamweight title against Joe Warren in the main event.

Check out the GIF highlights and the complete results below (all via Zombie Prophet):

Bubba McDaniel vs. Emiliano Sordi:

The GIF tells the entire story of this fight. McDaniel shot in and earned a tight guillotine choke for his efforts. It was a slick submission win for Sordi.

Alexander Sarnavskiy vs. Dakota Cochrane:

Domination was in vogue at Bellator 128. Sarnavskiy vs. Cochrane was just as one-sided as Sordi vs. McDaniel. Sarnavskiy made Cochrane look like he hadn’t boxed in his life. After rocking him on the feet and flooring him, Sarnavskiy sunk in a rear naked choke.

Michael Page vs. Nah Shon Burrell:

The fight many expected to be the fight of the night turned out to be a dud. There weren’t many highlights from this match. Burrell tried to wall-and-stall Page, but Page managed to land far more strikes. He won via decision. The GIF above shows off a post-fight scuffle between the two fighters–or it shows officials trying to break up a hug. You decide.

Eduardo Dantas vs. Joe Warren:

Much to our surprise, Joe Warren managed to defeat Eduardo Dantas! Warren out-wrestled and out-hustled the Brazilian, who seemed disinterested in the fight. To use a terrible cliche, Warren just WANTED IT MORE [barfs from using that phrase]. Warren’s performance was of the gritty wrestler variety. As such, it doesn’t lend itself to GIF highlights. So what we have above is an illegal kick to the head of a grounded Dantas. Big John McCarthy didn’t take a point for this infraction, which caused some controversy among MMA fans on Twitter.
