Bellator 90 Live Odds

Bellator 90 took place on February 21, 2013 at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah. The event was distributed live in prime time by Spike TV.

Bellator 90 featured the finals of the Bellator Season 7 Featherweight Tournament. The card also featured the Light Heavyweight and Welterweight tournament semifinals. Knockouts were abundant at Bellator 90 with every fight on the main card ending via KO.

In what may wind up being the biggest upset of the year in MMA, Emanuel Newton upset Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal in Bellator's Season 8 light heavyweight tournament semifinals.

And in the main event, Shahbulat Shamhalaev upset Rad Martinez in front of Martinez's home Utah faithful to win the delayed Season 7 featherweight tournament.

Martinez and Shamhalaev were originally supposed to fight in December, but a late injury forced Shahbulat Shamhalaev out. But in a move right out of the silver linings playbook, because of the delay, Utah native Martinez got to fight in front of a friendly audience.

Shahbulat Shamhalaev vs Rad Martinez:

Round 2: Shamhalaev feinting in the center of the cage now, trying to force Martinez to attack. Shamhalaev tags him to the gut, then puts a right hand upstairs. An overhand left from Martinez is easily ducked under by the Russian.

Head kick stumbles Martinez but Shamhalaev slips and can't follow up immediately. Martinez gets back to his feet, but he's on shaky legs.

Shamhalaev senses it and follows up with punches. Rad tries to get a breather, but Shamhalaev lands a crushing overhand right that splays him out on the canvas. The Dagestani dives in with a giant right forearm before referee Jason Herzog can save Martinez.
