    I agree, Hale's a good one. My problem with Hale at HW is much like M'Pumbu at LHW, in that they happen to be really talented fighters, but aren't really tailored to their weightclasses and in turn, end up fighting guys who are alot bigger.

    Brett Rogers looked horrible. That Russian dude just totally stifled all of his offense. Made it look like Rogers couldn't do anything. I was kinda hoping that Rogers would find some redemption, but not looking like that.

    Hale looked good at heavy weight.

    Santos vs Prindle horrible, nothing else to say.

    Santos at his best, has potential, but wins over Geronimo and Grove aren't too much to write home about and there are still big questions over his cardio and ability to make weight. He's young and raw, but I don't think the current BFC roster will really do anything to build him, since they really don't carry much credibility.
    Bjorn seems adamant the HW div is sticking around.

    Too crazy about the DQ and kick to the balls.

    Bellator 75 results

    A bout that was supposed to settle the unfinished business between Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos instead came to another bizarre end.

    Reversing roles from their first meeting, a downed Santos took a groin kick that prevented him from continuing.

    But unlike that meeting, which took place this past November, Prindle was disqualified, and Santos earned a spot in the semifinals of the Bellator Season 7 heavyweight tournament to cap an evening of fights at Bellator 75.

    The event took place at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind. Its main card aired on MTV2 following preliminary-card fights on Spike.com.

    Referee Greg Franklin, who also oversaw the duo's first meeting at Bellator 59, ruled that Prindle threw an intentionally illegal blow that warranted a disqualification. The blow, an errant axe kick, caused Santos to roll over in pain as officials attempted to tend to him. Lying on his stomach, he appeared to nap before being rolled to his back. It was clear he could not continue.

    The boot to the jewels that ended the heavyweights' first fight was ruled unintentional and called a no-contest.

    Prindle apologized to cameras and appeared contrite to officials and Santos and his camp. The official time of the stoppage was 4:54 of the first round.

    Up until that point, the bout had been going swimmingly for Santos, who charged in and slammed Prindle to the mat. Working for multiple submissions, it appeared a matter of time before he forced a tap-out. But Prindle showed far more intelligence on the ground and managed to escape.

    Santos invited him to the ground, but Prindle stayed overhead. Franklin could be heard warning Prindle not to kick the groin. Then he did.

    After the first meeting, the two were scheduled to meet at Bellator 61, but Prindle was forced to withdraw the day prior to the fight due to an illness, and another scheduled meeting set for the finals of the Season 5 tournament was marred when Santos failed to make weight and Prindle was ruled the tournament's default winner.

    As far as each other, the matchup appears to be cursed.

    Following a three-fight win streak in Bellator, Prindle (7-3 MMA, 3-2 BFC) now suffers his first official loss. Apart from the no-contest, Santos (10-1 MMA, 3-0 BFC) has won his past five outings.
    Rogers freezes in a career-killing performance

    Brett Rogers' big-show career might be over.

    The former EliteXC and Strikeforce fighter froze against Russian prospect Alexander Volkov and coasted three rounds before losing a unanimous decision.

    The 30-27 scores for Volkov in no way reflected the onesidedness of the bout, which drew boos from the audience.

    Volkov spent three rounds chasing Rogers around the ring while unloading with combinations.
    Hale blasts Wessel in 79-second stoppage

    Tall at light heavyweight, Bellator tourney vet Richard Hale appears deadly at heavyweight.

    Hale, who fell short at 205 pounds against Season 4 tourney winner and current champ Christian M'Pumbu, made the most of his heavyweight debut and stopped Mike Wessel in 79 seconds.

    "Ain't no longer just a light heavyweight," a fired-up Hale said afterward. "Heavyweight coming!"

    The shorter Wessel stalked toward Hale only to meet, well, a hail of punches that put him on wobbly legs. Hale quickly took position at the UFC vet's back and flattened him out before ending the fight with a flurry of punches.
    Queiroz pops Holata's arm for semifinal berth

    Vinicius Queiroz was in big trouble against Mark Holata, but he rebounded in a big way.

    The UFC castoff, who was released following a positive post-fight steroid test at UFC 120, pulled out a come-from-behind win by securing an armbar after getting dropped with a punch shortly into the first frame of their bout.

    Holata's arm appeared to be dislocated immediately following the fight. He writhed in pain as Queiroz celebrated.

    Moments before, Holata appeared well on his way to taking down Queiroz, but the Brazilian peeled off the cage after a charge and caught Holata with a couple of hard right hands. He also took a few hard punches in close as Holata clinched. But that wasn't the worst of his problems.

    A left hook rocked Quieroz's jaw, sending him crashing to the canvas. The referee nearly intervened there, but wisely stepped back, and Holata went to work with hammerfists. He didn't, however, see a triangle choke coming and nearly got caught before adjusting.

    When Quieroz started scooting his hips, Holata failed to adjust, and Quieroz went belly-down with the arm lock to prompt the tap at the 3:26 mark of the first round.
