Ben Saunders’ path in the Season 8 welterweight tournament saw him take a decision in the opening round. That left him furious and focused on stoppages for the remainder of the tournament.
“I’m looking for a finish every time,” said Saunders to MMA Junkie. “If they make it to a decision, they definitely gain respect from me. But I definitely feel like I failed as a fighter.”
That decision win was against Koffi Adzitso. Saunders meets Raul Amaya at Bellator 90, who took a first round stoppage over Jose Gomes.
The two have met before under the Bellator name with Saunders taking a decision win in the Season 6 semifinals.
Bellator 90 is tomorrow, February 21, and comes from the Maverik Center in West Valley City, UT.
