Bellator 166 results: Eduardo Dantas retains bantamweight title

Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas successfully defended his title on Friday night, by dominating Joe Warren, the man who ended his first title reign in the promotion, in the main event of Bellator 166.

Despite his dominant performance over Warren in front of a rowdy crowd at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma, there was a puzzling scorecard that caused a majority decision rather than the unanimous victory everyone else saw.

Regardless of the questionable scorecard, the right man came away with the title and continued his reig at 135-pounds.

The rest of the main card was packed with decisions, while the preliminary card saw some impressive grappling that led to submission wins in three of four fights.

Did you miss out on Friday night’s action? Don’t worry, we have you covered.
