Bellator 79 took place on November 2, 2012 at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario. The event was distributed live in prime time by MTV2

Bellator 79 hosted the one half of the semi-finals of Bellator's Season Seven Heavyweight Tournament and Featherweight Tournament.

Paul Daley was originally scheduled for this event, but was taken off the card due to concerns that he would be stopped at the Canadian border due to incomplete paperwork needed to secure a visa.

Bellator returned to Canada last night (Nov. 2, 2012) as mettle was tested, heart was measured and cardio was killer on a main card that featured a wide variety of stoppages and very entertaining fights.

No fight had more ups and downs in a short amount of time than the main event, a season seven heavyweight tournament semifinal bout pitting former light heavyweight finalist Richard Hale against former heavyweight tournament finalist Thiago "Big Monster" Santos.

Richard Hale vs Thiago Santos:

Round 1: Hale starts us off with a teep kick and Santos comes forward swinging big punches. Santos lands the double leg and quickly gains side control Santos stands and punishes Hale as he tries to get up.

Santos looking for a single leg but Hale defends, now Santos hasHale pinned against the fence. The ref separates them.

Santos again comes forward like a bull winging shots from his hips, Hale with stands the barrage defends a weak takedown by Santos squashing him down to the canvas and unloading winging punches of his own until the ref is forced to come to Santos aid and stop the barrage.
