The main card bouts at Bellator 57 didn't exactly have a star-studded cast like the UFC on Fox, but it delivered plenty of intense action that left the fans cheering all evening.
After a majority draw result in the last prelim fight between Chris "The Polish Hammer" Horodecki and Mike Corey, the fighters that followed knew that anything could happen if they let their fate be decided by a judge's scorecard.
The main card featured two tournament final fights, each with $100,000 and a title shot on the line and Alexander Shlemenko and Douglas Lima came out with that prize after intense back-and-forth wars with Vitor Vianna and Ben Saunders, respectively.
Bellator has positioned itself as a top world-class promotion as Viacom purchased a majority stake in the promotion and with the UFC moving over to Fox, Bellator will start airing on Spike TV in 2013. The fights seen on MTV2 tonight were a testament to what a mixed martial arts event can offer, so let's take a look at the main card.
