CHICAGO, Ill. (January 15, 2010) Bellator Fighting Championships continued to solidify its much-talked-about featherweight division today with the announcement that Bao Quach, one of the world’s most devastating 145-lb. strikers, will compete in the promotion’s Season 2 tournament.

The 30-year-old Californian is in the midst of a prolonged power surge, with wins in 11 of his last 12 fights. Four of those fights came via KO or TKO in during Round 1.

Accordingly, Quach is regarded as one of MMA’s top strikers – a  reputation that he has continued to build by training under world-class martial arts coach Colin Oyama, who has also schooled the likes of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Tito Ortiz.

Strikeforce Challenger ends in controversy – fighter comments and photos

Mike Aina kneed in the head??
Mike Aina kneed in the head??

Friday night’s Strikeforce Challenger event suffered an anticlimactic main event ending when the previously undefeated Billy Evangelista was disqualified for “intentionally” kneeing Mike Aina in the head while the Hilo fighter still had a knee on the ground. Aina was rewarded a “TKO” victory at 3:42 of round two in the lightweight match-up.

Neither fighter left the Save Mart Center in Fresno satisfied with the result. “I feel bad at what happened, but I am definitely planning to protest. Nothing I did was on purpose. I thought I had timed the knee perfectly and that he was on his feet when it was delivered,’’ said Evangelista after the fight.

Although Aina received the victory due to disqualification he took no pride in the win, “No one likes a fight to finish this way. I don’t look at it as a win for me, and he should not look at it as a loss for him. It should have been a no contest.’’
