Bellator 62 Recap: Those Are the Breaks

It just wouldn’t be a Friday night without a Santos-Prindle cancellation and an action-packed Bellator tournament. If you went dateless last night (or had a really awesome date) and managed to catch the opening round of the Season 6 Lightweight tourney, you were treated to some memorable scraps. For those who missed it: someone got concussed, someone’s in a cast, and we’ve got your cheat sheet right here.

Rene Nazare was looking to let his hands go from the onset, but once Thiago Michel rattled off a few front kicks to the grill his interest in a standup battle waned. Michel worked his kickboxing game all three rounds, using his long limbs to land combinations while keeping Nazare at bay. The BJJ specialist was denied takedowns throughout the fight, and when he did manage to pull Michel to the ground he was either short on time or short on action. Michel’s aggression on the feet and defense on the ground was enough to score the split decision win.

A rare submission, a knock out, and a broken limb await you after the jump.

Bellator 62: Thiago Santos Misses Weight by 12.8 Pounds (!), Eric Prindle Earns His Title Shot the Easy Way


(Menstrual period, bro. I’ve done nothing this week except retain water and eat Girl Scout cookies.”)

Remember two weeks ago when a Bellator featherweight tournament competitor was kicked out for missing weight by four pounds? That was nothing. At yesterday’s Bellator 62 weigh-ins in Laredo, Texas, season five heavyweight tournament finalist Thiago “Big Monster” Santos hit the scales at 277.8 pounds, whiffing his heavyweight limit by a full 12.8. By our calculations, this is the third greatest weigh-in failure in MMA history.

Instead of postponing Santos’s HW finals match against Eric Prindle again — remember, this fight has already been re-scheduled twice due to savage groin kick and flu-like symptoms — Bellator decided they’d had enough of Big Monster’s antics and booted him from the tournament. By default, Prindle scores the $100k check and will face undefeated champion Cole Konrad for the Bellator heavyweight title later this year.

All of Bellator 62′s season six lightweight tournament fighters were on weight for their opening-round bouts, although welterweight Joseph Daily came in three pounds heavy for his preliminary card match against Sean Spencer. Full weigh-in results and broadcast info for tonight’s event are below…
