Bellator 85 Live Odds

Bellator 85 took place on January 17, 2013 at the Bren Events Center in Irvine, California. The event was distributed live in prime time by Spike TV. It marked the season debut of season eight.

Bellator 85 was to open with a fight chosen exclusively by fans in the "Bellator: Vote For The Fight" contest. Fans could log onto to select the two fighters they want to see square off in the first ever Bellator bout on Spike TV.

The eligible fighters were all welterweights and included Paul Daley, Douglas Lima, Ben Saunders and War Machine. Initially a bout between Daley and War Machine was announced by Bellator, but it was subsequently cancelled when War Machine tore his ACL and broke his fibula.

In the main event, Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler defended successfully his title against Rick Hawn. Also on the card, Pat Curran retained without problems his title against Patricio "Pitbull" Freire.

Michael Chandler vs Rick Hawn:

Round 2: Both men miss right crosses. The lightweights paw with jabs until Chandler shoots in and slams Hawn to the mat. Punches and left elbows from Chandler chop down on Hawn's face. Hawn shrimps back to the fence but Chandler is bullish with his control.

Hawn scrambles to his knees, but Chandler sinks a hook in before slamming him back down to the mat. This time, the champion instantly sinks his hooks in and locks his choking arm under Hawn's neck.

Chandler stretches his challenger back, locking the choke in for the tap. Dominant and impressive performance by Michael Chandler. The end comes at 3:05 of the second round.
