Bellator 55 Live Odds

Bellator 55 was a mixed martial arts event held by Bellator Fighting Championships on October 22, 2011 at Cocopah Resort and Casino in Yuma, Arizona.

Look no further than the main event of the evening, a semifinal matchup in the Bellator bantamweight tournament pitting Olympic bronze medal wrestler Alexis Vila against two-time world champion Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner and WEC veteran Marcus Galvao.

Vila, the smaller man with a significantly shorter reach, had issues finding his range early in the fight, and Galvao was equally concerned with the Cuban defector's power as both men engaged very little in a tentative first round that could have been scored either way.

Alexis Vila vs Marcus Galvao:

The two were cautious in the early going, as Vila circled on the outside while looking to land a bomb. Galvao's reach advantage certainly seemed to frustrate Vila early on, and a takedown from the Cuban wrestler resulted in just a brief moment on the floor.

A stiff jab sent an off-balance Galvao to the floor in the final minute of the frame, but neither fighter really didanything to impress during the frame.

Vila pushed forward a little more aggressively in the second, but Galvao defended an early takedown. A wild right hook landed for Vila halfway into the frame, and both fighters came alive in the closing minute.

Again, both fighters had moments, but neither made it inarguable. Galvao may have earned the nod with a few late shots to the body, but it was razor-thin.
