Also Friday, Marcos Galvao won a decision against Travis Marx in a Bellator bantamweight semifinal fight. Galvo advanced to the Bellator Season 6 bantamweight tournament final and closer to a possible eventual fight against Bellator world champion Eduardo "DuDu" Dantas. Later this year, Galvao will face the winner of the the upcoming Luis Nogueira-Hiroshi Nakamura fight for the Season 6 championship.

In the night's first fight, Marius Zaromskis beat veteran Waachiim Spiritwolf for his first Bellator victory. Between the second and third rounds, the ringside doctor stopped the fight because of a cut above Spiritwolf's right eye. Zaromskis improved to 17-6. Spiritwolf fell to 9-10-1.
