My Thoughts From The Bellator 150 Main Card
Cheick Kongo def. Vinicius Queiroz via split decision (30-27, 28-29, 29-28)
There were some good exchanges on the feet but Kongo definitely controlled the distance better and used leg kicks to punish Queiroz. The only problem is Kongo got taken down a few times and ended up spending a ton of time on his back. I realize Vinicius didn’t do much when he was on top (kind of like me in the bedroom…I mean no), but he was still on top. I gave the decision to Vinicius but I can see why the judges ended up scoring in favor of Cheick.
David Rickels def. Bobby Cooper via TKO (punches) – Round 1, 3:49
This was a good win for Rickels. He needed a W to stay in the picture and thankfully he got it in the first round.
Kendall Grove def. Francisco France via knockout (punches) – Round 2, 0:35
This ended with a brutal knockout. Kendall Grove was swinging for the fences and you could see the amount of power he put on each punch. I would hate to be Francisco France’s face the day after.
Chuka Willis def. Gaston Reyno via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27)
I don’t remember this fight so I guess I will plead the 5th.
Rebecca Ruth def. Lena Ovchynnikova via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 29-28)
This was a surprising fight because I didn’t think Ruth would be able to use her hands to catch Lena Ovchuynnikova…but she did. Her ground game seemed to me on point as well. I think not having a bunch of weight classes in Bellator hurts Lena because she looked so small against Ruth. In the end, I watched in hopes of seeing a wardrobe malfunction.
