The judges at Bellator's Thursday night card didn't have much work to do. Out of the 10 fights on the card, only one went to a decision. Dave Jansen won the lightweight tournament with a unanimous decision over Marcin Held.

Of the nine fights that were stopped, eight came in the first round. Three fights ended in under 20 seconds. Michael Page earned a 10-second knockout, Dave Vitkay choked out Jesse Peterson in 18 seconds, and Ryan Martinez knocked out Travis Wiuff in 18 seconds. But not all the stoppages were exciting. Marcus Davis and Waachiim Spiritwolf's fight ended in a no contest after Spiritwolf took a knee to the groin and couldn't continue.
