[VIDEO] Fallon Fox Defeats Allana Jones via Third Round Submission


Video after the jump.

If we weren’t supposed to be talking about Fallon Fox until her next fight took place, then today the unofficial ban has been lifted. Last night, Fox defeated then 2-1 fighter Allana Jones by way of modified north-south choke at CFA 11. Fox improved her record to 3-0 with the victory, and will now fight Ashlee Evans-Smith for the CFA featherweight tournament championship.

Other than that, there really isn’t much to see here. Believe it or not, a bout between two inexperienced minor-leaguers that was bumped to co-main event status due to the transgender status of one of the participants didn’t produce a memorable scrap.

Also, Allana Jones chose “Dude Looks Like a Lady” as her entrance song.

The video of the fight and commentary are available after the jump.

Bellator Summer Series Kicks Off June 25, People Will Try To Hurt One Another for Your Entertainment

Since we mentioned it yesterday in that blatant vanity post, we’ll go ahead and fill you in with some of the details about Bellator’s plans for the summer. As you may remember, a BFC press release announcing the deal with MTV2 made a vague mention of “a collection of special feature events” on top of two full seasons a year. Details at the time were sketchy, and we weren’t really sure what those special feature events would entail. As the season four tournaments unfolded, we heard more and more about tournament action between seasons, initially referred to as a “mini-tournament”. We’d been thinking that this meant perhaps a couple of four-man brackets, maybe some of those Super Fights that Bellator digs so much.

Man, we were way off. Bjorn Rebney, head honcho of the BFC, has put together another intriguing tournament at 145, and that, ladies and germs, will be your main course for the summer series. If you are interested in that kind of thing, we’ve prepared a short primer on the featherweight tourney, plus a preview of Bellator 46, where the four quarterfinals will kick off in that other Hollywood.

Although we suppose you could come in and just throw poop at the new guy. Whatever.

Pat Curran Dropping to Featherweight for Bellator’s Upcoming Tournament

Despite making a name for himself in Bellator as a lightweight, Bellator announced yesterday that Season Two Lightweight Tournament winner Pat Curran will drop to featherweight to enter the upcoming Summer Series Featherweight Tournament. The tournament is scheduled to kick off June 25 at Bellator 46 at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida. The winner will receive a shot at Joe Warren for the Bellator Featherweight title.

In a press release sent out by Bellator, Pat Curran issued the following statement: “I’ve fought at featherweight for most of my career, so I’m really excited to get back to a weight class where I can really do some damage…I had some great results as a lightweight, but I’m really going to make some noise in this summer featherweight tournament.” Curran’s Cinderella run through the season two lightweight tournament was followed up by a decision loss to Eddie Alvarez back at Bellator 39. Despite the loss, Curran showed a lot of heart throughout the fight, avoiding Eddie’s takedowns and absorbing a lot of damage while attempting to mount his own offense.
