Bellator 94 Live Odds

Bellator 94 took place on March 28, 2013 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida. The event was distributed live in prime time by Spike TV and featured the Light Heavyweight and Lightweight Tournament Finals.

Tony Fryklund made his return to mixed martial arts on this card after a 6 year absence. His last fight was a losing effort against Cung Le at a Strikeforce event in June 2007. A bout between middleweights Ivan Devalle and Rory Shallcross was originally announced for this card, but failed to materialize.

In a night that featured tournament underdogs who made their way to the finals, it was the favorites who would end up prevailing at Bellator 94 as Emanuel Newton earned a unanimous decision victory over Mikhail Zayats and David Rickels stopped Saad Awad after two rounds to become the light heavyweight and light weight season 8 tournament champions, respectively.

Emanuel Newton vs Mikhail Zayats:

Round 3: Newton throws a left body kick and eats a Zayats right hand. The American works his way into the clinch, pressing Zayats' back to the cage, punching to the body and trying to drag him to the mat. A tiring Zayats grabs onto a headlock briefly before Newton frees himself. Newton trips Zayats to the mat for just a second, but the Russian gets to his feet and breaks away from Newton's grip.

A head kick from Newton clips Zayats but the overhand right directly behind it drops him on his seat. Newton dives on the Russian quickly, nearly locking up a bulldog choke in the process, but Zayats twists out of it and gets back to his feet. Newton switches to southpaw briefly, then back again, just investigating potential kicking attacks on Zayats. Newton jabs, turns sideways while eating a Zayats counter and tries to rip him with a spinning back fist like he did to Mo Lawal.

Zayats shoots a double-leg takedown then switches to a single, but Newton is back to his feet as soon as he touches the canvas. Under a minute left to fight. Newton lands two left roundhouses to the body then eats a Zayats cross. “The Hardcore Kid” opts to play it safe, dragging Zayats to the mat. The Russian nearly locks up an armbar, but Newton escapes and punches away until the final bell.
