HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — “Bellator 13″, the event opener for Bellator Fighting Championships’ second season took place Thursday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. ProMMAnow.com provided live results and play-by-play commentary for the event, and our friend Tom Hill of TomHillPhotos.com (www.tomhillphotos.com) has provided us with an amazing photo gallery of the night’s action.
UFC veteran Roger Huerta looked fantastic in his Bellator debut against Chad Hinton, and ended the fight in the third round via kneebar. Wrestling phenom Joe Warren proved once again wrestling is the best base to carry into MMA, as he won a unanimous decision “ground-and-pounding” over Eric Marriott.
Georgi Karakhanyan defeated Bao Quach by TKO in round one, Carey Vanier defeated Joe Duarte by TKO in round three, Chris Manuel defeated Ralph Acosta by submission in round three, and Mikey Gomez won a unanimous decision over Moyses Gabin. “Bellator XIV” takes place in Chicago next Thursday.
