Bellator 88 Live Odds

Bellator 88 took place on February 7, 2013 at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. The event was distributed live in prime time by Spike TV.

Bellator 88 featured the opening round of the Season Eight Featherweight Tournament as well as a title fight for the vacant Middleweight title. A middleweight bout between Kelvin Tiller and Dave Vitkay was originally announced for this card, but failed to materialize.

Alexander Shlemenko became the new Bellator middleweight champion Thursday night, besting Maiquel Falcao in the main event of Bellator 88.

The bout was used to determine the new champion in the division, as the belt had been vacant since Hector Lombard departed for the UFC. Shlemenko ended the contest two minutes into the second round, stopping Falcao in his tracks.

Alexander Shlemenko vs Maiquel Falcao:

Round 2: Shlemenko lands a hook and a kick to the body, going after Falcao as the second round begins. Falcao weathers a minute of striking on his back foot before wrapping Shlemenko up and clinching on the fence.

Shlemenko gets out and swings a murderous left hook at the Brazilian’s face. He catches a kick from Falcao and sticks a right hand down the pipe, but Falcao comes right back, punishing the body with hooks as Shlemenko covers up. Now it’s Shlemenko’s turn, grabbing the Thai plum and kneeing Falcao’s body.

A hook to the liver hurts Falcao, and a short right hook puts him on the ground. Falcao already appears to be surrendering when Shlemenko drops more punches down and knocks him out cold. Alexander Shlemenko becomes the new Bellator middleweight champion at 2:18 of round two.
