Bellator IX Quick Results: Lombard, Hess In Finals


(Say something about Castro again. Hector wishes you would.)

Regulatory difficulties in Quebec forced Bellator to get all old-school UFC and move Bellator IX to the glitz and glamour of Monroe, Louisiana, but they did what any good promotion would do: grabbed some crawfish and rolled with the punches.  Last night’s event narrowed down their finalists for the upcoming middleweight tournament, and they had a bunch of other fights just for fun.  Here’s how it went down:

Middleweight semi-final tournament fights:
Jared Hess def. Yosmany Cabezas via TKO at 4:26, round 3
Hector Lombard def. Damien Stelly via TKO (strikes) at 2:56, round 1

Non-tournament fights:
Nick Ring def. Isidro "Chilo" Gonzalez via submission (guillotine) at 0:39, round 1
Shad Lierley def. Nate Murdock via unanimous decision
Alex Andrade def. Christian Fulgram via TKO at 2:01, round 1
Shawn Jordan def. Jayme McKinney via submission at 0:30, round 2
Chan Leonhardt def. Dan Keenan via KO at 3:03, round 1
Chas Skelly def. Mike Braswell via split decision, round 3

I know both of the guys in that picture. In fact I've kicked both of there asses...at the same time! No, but seriously I could if I wanted, I just don't feel like it right now.

I've got Lombard winning the whole thing.

I was at the fights last night. They were great. Lombard is a beast. He destroyed stelly. Ring and Leonhardt are up and comers, look like they have a shot to do something. Really good fights though. 40 bucks gets you ringside, thats hard to beat.

Bellator is the little promotion that could. They make interesting fights and have some crazy finishes so far, not to mention their owners are actually competent and understand sports marketing. When it gets on a better network, Bellator is going to become a nice change of pace from the UFC.
