Bellator 91 witnessed the crowning of a new champion for the first time since the promotion debuted on Spike TV in January.
Attila Vegh won the light heavyweight championship from Christian M’Pumbu in the main event via unanimous decision. It was M’Pumbu’s first defense since winning the title almost two years ago.
The other two bouts on the main card saw Saad Awad need less than a minute to earn a TKO against Will Brooks to advance to the finals of the Season 8 lightweight tournament. The other side of the tournament had David Rickels secure a decision over Jason Fischer.
Bellator 91 came from the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, NM. The event took place yesterday, February 28, and aired on Spike TV. Ratings from the show will be released later today and FightLine will have them.
