Gegard Mousasi def. Douglas Lima by unanimous decision (48-47, 49-46, 49-46) for vacant Bellator middleweight title
Mousasi outworked Lima in an absolute snoozer to become a two-time Bellator middleweight champion. The opening round was entertaining enough as Mousasi dragged these to the ground and walloped on Lima. The remainder of the fight, however, was littered with tenative striking and grappling exchanges that went next to nowhere. Lima did wear down Mousasi's leg over time, but it was not enough for the three judges cageside.
