Bellator 48 Results and Bellator Season 5 Bruce Lee Promo

Pat Curran added another spectacular finish to the Bellator highlight reel library, KOing Marlon Sandro in the second round of last night's Featherweight Tournament Finale. In a non-title heavyweight bout, Bellator heavyweight titleholder Cole Konrad abandoned his usual wrestling-heavy strategy in exchange for effective striking, as he ousted experienced fighter Paul Buentello. In another heavyweight tilt, Seth Petruzelli brought Ricco Rodriguez's twelve fight win streak to a screeching halt with a first round TKO.
