SAN JOSE, Calif. – Saturday’s Bellator 220 event had a little bit of everything for fight fans, from spectacular finishes to bizarre tournament results.
In the night’s main event, Bellator welterweight champ Rory MacDonald (20-5-1 MMA, 2-1-1 BMMA) fought to a disappointing majority draw with perennial contender Jon Fitch (31-7-2 MMA, 1-0-1 BMMA). While Fitch took the fight on one judge’s card, two dissenting totals had it a draw, allowing MacDonald to retain his title and move on in the grand prix.
In the night’s co-feature, Bellator women’s flyweight champ Ilima-Lei Macfarlane (10-0 MMA, 9-0 BMMA) retained her title after some initial difficulties against Veta Arteaga (5-3 MMA, 4-3 BMMA). While known as a grappling specialist, it was a vicious Macfarlane elbow that secured her the win, slicing open Arteaga and forcing a doctor stoppage.
Additional main-card results saw Benson Henderson (27-8 MMA, 4-3 BMMA) take a split decision over Adam Piccolotti (11-3 MMA, 7-3 BMMA), while Phil Davis (19-5 MMA, 6-2 BMMA) broke the jaw of Liam McGeary (13-3 MMA, 10-3 BMMA) en route to a third-round TKO.
