De La Cruz and Good Advance to Bellator Welterweight Finals; Vera and Sanchez Also Victorious


(Bellator VII highlights, courtesy of YouTube.com/BellatorMMA)

Bellator‘s welterweight tournament finals were settled on Friday night in Chicago, as Lyman Good and Omar De La Cruz got their hands raised in the semis after dominant performances. Good increased his record to 9-0 with his whipping of Jorge Ortiz (highlights begin at the above video’s 4:15 mark), as he poured on an overwhelming barrage of strikes over two rounds until Ortiz’s face fell apart and the fight was stopped due to a cut. De La Cruz was just as aggressive in his fight with former UFC middleweight champ Dave Menne (see the vid’s 6:15 mark), throwing down some of hardest punches from the top that you will ever see in your life, before ending the fight with a lights-out right hook. Good and De La Cruz will meet in the welterweight finals on June 12th in Uncasville, Connecticut.

In non-tournament action, Kerry Vera won a thrilling three-rounder over Leslie Smith in her MMA debut (highlights begin at the video’s 1:28 mark), and UFC vet Eddie Sanchez scored the fastest knockout in Bellator history with his 10-second demolition of Jay White (skip to 3:39). Full event results and the complete video of the must-see Vera/Smith fight are after the jump…

Look out for Jacob Volkman... He's no joke. He was my best friend's roomate freshman year in college when they were both wrestling for the same U of MN team that Brock Lesnar was on. Jacob ended up being a 3 time all american. In high school he was also a golden gloves boxer. He's a scary dude and no one wants to fight him.

the first video at the 3:58 mark. wtf is that about? i really wish they explained what the hell he was talking about because it kinda freaked me out.

I'm liking the Bellator fights. It seems a lot like they're fighting at WEC caliber at least. More please.

Good is going to take it...

That boy needs to get in the UFC

It looked to me like Ortiz's cut came from an accidental headbutt. Looked like they collided pretty good.

good stuff kinda annoying how they kept repeating the same sequences 3-4 times though..

Barry Mckockenner- May 17, 2009 at 11:50 am
gotta say im likin the Bellator fights so far .. one would think that promotion would most likely be televised on ESPN someday.

Too right greenseed. 3 Minute rounds suck, and the women won't get the same respect as men long as they're not allowed to go by the same rules. Damn kerry vera fucked that girsl face up though...

Good show bellator. Keep it up.

greenseed- May 17, 2009 at 10:40 am
ya what HAL said..... NOT


I wonder what it would take to get wmma fights up to 5 min rounds?
3 mins is fucking retarded. grapplers need like 2-3 mins just to work to a good position for submission sometimes..... bool chit

Hal, why do you keep crying about Fedor. Get over it. He will put a hurting on the Heavy Weight division if he eventually did come to the UFC. And everyone knows that. You just have some wierd hate towards him that makes you rant about him for weeks.

831 Son- May 17, 2009 at 10:37 am
Bellator is pretty tight. I like the tournament set up and the fighters look tough. Lyman Good was very impressive. And Dave Menne shoulda fucked De La Cruz up every time he tried to throw those massive over hand right haymakers. Kick him in the head fucker cmon now.

@ Dozer, I agree on that one. Women aint for the UFC but WEC would be a good place for them.
HAL_13- May 17, 2009 at 10:27 am
I'M THINKING THAT FEDOR WOULD HAVE A GOOD CHANCE AT KEEPING HIS WINNING STREAK ALIVE AS LONG AS HE WAS TO FIGHT SOME OF THE LADIES, AND CONTINUE TO DUCK, AND RUN FROM THE UFC LIKE THE CHICKEN SHIT COWARD BITCH RUSSIAN THAT HE IS. THEN AGAIN THESE LITTLE LADIES WOULD PROBABLY FUCK HIS COWARD ASS UP ANYWAY. HE MAY JUST WANT TO KEEP HANGING OUT WITH MIKE TYSON SO HE CAN GET USED TO THE WAY HIS FUTURE IS GOING TO TURN OUT. 1 MINUTE EVERYONE IS SUCKING THE SHIT FROM HIS ASS, AND THE NEXT MINUTE THE WHOLE WORLD HATES HIM CAUSE HE'S GETTING HIS ASS KICKED EVERYWHERE HE GOES, AND NIBBLIN ON EARS. GET READY FOLKS CAUSE ITS COMING.

Looks like there are some good upcoming female fighters. Dana White should start a women's division in the WEC.
Harry Russo- May 17, 2009 at 9:07 am
Way to go Eddie Sanchez
