Bellator staged an event in Israel today, which will air tomorrow on Spike TV. Spoiler alert – the results and video from the show are below, so if you want to be surprised tomorrow, read no further.
Now that we have that out of the way – the promotion has a new welterweight champion. In the main event of Bellator 164, Andrey Koreshkov defended his title against Douglas Lima, the man he won the title from last July. Things didn’t go quite as well for him here though, as he was knocked out by Lima in the third round. Not just knocked out – badly knocked out.
Douglas’ brother Dhiego Lima posted the fight video on his Facebook page, which you can watch below if you feel so inclined. The finish comes at around the 33:04 mark of the video. It’s not great footage, but it’s an impressive ending.
