Bellator 89 Live Odds

Bellator 89 took place on February 14, 2013 at The Bojangles' Coliseum, in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event was distributed live in prime time by Spike TV. Bellator 89 featured the opening round of the Middleweight tournament.

The event also featured the first defense for Eduardo Dantas of the Bantamweight Title since he won it from Zach Makovsky in May 2012. It marked the first time two training partners and friends have fought for a title in the Bellator promotion.

The main event of the evening was a highly intriguing bout between Brazilian Nova Uniao teammates Eduardo Dantas and Marcos Galvao. The champion, Dantas, had a lot to prove heading into the fight as he was coming off a tremendous upset loss at the hands of Tyson Nam in a non-title bout last summer.

Dantas proved to be by far the quicker fighter early on, landing slick inside leg kicks and a stiff jab early on against Galvao, who was content to stalk the champ from the cage center and attempt to land big bombs with both his left and right hand.

Marcos Galvao vs Eduardo Dantas:

Round 2: Dantas rifles a low kick to start the second, and Galvao retorts with the same technique. Dantas fires another jab, and the men again trade low kicks and then glancing right crosses.

Dantas rattles off five or six unanswered strikes from the outside, touching his teammate with several clean blows before cracking Galvao with a head kick. The 31-year-old buckles but somehow recovers to trade haymakers with the aggressive champion.

Dantas lands a sharp spinning-back kick and then drops his teammate with a beautiful right uppercut. Galvao falls flat as a board, and “Dudu” finishes the job with a series of hammerfists to retain his bantamweight belt. Brutal knockout. The official end comes at 3:01 of the second frame.
