Last night saw the return of Bellator, who are coming thick and fast with the events. On display was their new signing from the UFC, Corey Anderson. Taking on Melvin Manhoef, and looking to catapult himself into top contender status, as he was in the UFC.
Anderson was not long ago on the cusp of a UFC title shot, until he lost to the now champion, Jan Blachowicz. Surprisingly, he was let out of his UFC contract early, to go to Bellator. Something that is not often allowed by the UFC.
Below are the results:
Corey Anderson def. Melvin Manhoef via 2nd round TKO.
Tyrell Fortune def. Said Sowma via Unanimous Decision.
