Bellator 149 is definitely an event that happened. Is that a good or bad thing? That's up for debate.

The main event and co-main event were as bad as anybody could have predicted, but in very different ways. Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000 turned into one of the all-time best (or worst) freakshow fights, while Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock 3 ended with an unfortunate degree of controversy.

The rest of the card, unfortunately, got somewhat forgotten in the shuffle, but actually featured some very strong performances from Bellator staples.

Here are the full results:

  • Royce Gracie def. Ken Shamrock by TKO via punches at 2:22 of Round 1
  • Kimbo Slice def. Dada 5000 by TKO via punches at 1:32 of Round 3
  • Derek Campos def. Melvin Guillard by TKO via punches at 0:32 of Round 2
  • Linton Vassell def. Emanuel Newton by unanimous decision (30-26, 29-27, 29-27)
  • Emmanuel Sanchez def. Daniel Pineda by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

  • Adrian Yanez def. Ryan Hollis by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
