Bellator MMA returned today with Bellator 243 and was headlined by the showdown between Michael Chandler and Benson Henderson.
Chandler, who was having the last fight of his Bellator Contract, closed the main event in style when he stopped Henderson in the first round itself with a stellar left hand. The last time these two met, Chandler had picked up a win via a split decision after five hard-fought rounds. With the win, Chandler is now on a two-fight winning streak while Henderson’s four-fight winning streak came to an end.
In the co-main event, Timothy Johnson picked up a huge win against Matt Mitrione when Myles Jury and Sabah Homasi also ended up in the winning columns. Johnson was coming off an impressive KO win against Tyrell Fortune and improved his winning streak to two when Mitrione continued his slow run as he has not picked up a victory in his last four fights.
Valerie Loureda produced a memorable stoppage in her fight against Tara Graff and went home with a second-round KO victory. Adam Borics, Cric Lencioni, Grant Neal, Charlie Campbell and Dalton Rosta also picked up wins in their respective fights. Below are the complete results from the event.
