Alexander Shlemenko vs Brian Rogers:

The main event of the evening was a Bellator season five middleweight tournament semifinal match-up between aggressive strikers Alexander Shlemenko and Brian Rogers. Shlemenko held a serious experience edge with nearly five times as many fights, but Rogers entered riding a wave of momentum with a seven consecutive first round knockouts to his credit.

Rogers got the better of Shlemenko early, battering him with punches and knees and inflicting serious damage when he had him pinned against the fence. "The Predator" also took the Russian down with immaculate timing when Shlemenko attempted his crazy spinning back fist attacks.

Zach Makovsky vs Ryan Roberts:

In "Superfight" action, Bellator bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky took on UFC veteran Ryan Roberts.

Roberts was the bigger man but Makovsky took him down every time he even thought about striking with him. "Fun Size" also showcased some improved striking of his own, staggering Roberts with leg kicks and combinations. Makovsky capped off his showcase fight by finishing his overmatched foe with a north-south choke from top position.
