Bellator 65 continued the Bellator Fighting Championship's sixth season last night (April 13, 2012) from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

It was a thrilling night of bouts and none were more impressive than the main event, a bantamweight title fight between champion Zach Makovsky and challenger Eduardo Dantas.

Zach Makovsky vs Eduardo Dantas:

Round 2: Makovsky is rushing forward with punches but can’t land. He dives in on a single-leg, but Dantas hits a brilliant switch, momentarily taking his back. Makovsky bails to his back and gives up side control. “Dudu” is immediately into knee-on-belly and then into mount. Makovsky tries to go out the back door, but only gets back to half guard. Dantas postures up and pounds, letting Makovsky get full guard back.

The Brazilian stands up again to pound, and as “Fun Size” tries to squirm away, Dantas dives onto his back. The champ rolls, but he gives up full mount. This is complete dominance by the Brazilian now, who is sitting on Makovsky’s chest with over two minutes to go in the round. Makovsky tries to push off the fence, but Dantas turns him away. Makovsky tries to roll, but he gets caught in a arm-triangle. Makovsky tries to hook his own leg, but Dantas’ grip is so strong that Makovsky goes out cold.

Makovsky’s grip unconsciously breaks, as his body goes limp and referee Keith Peterson rescues him at 3:26 of the second round. Eduardo Dantas is the new Bellator bantamweight champion in remarkable style.
