The Bellator promotion will be setting up shop at Caesars Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., on Dec. 7. The marquee fight for this, their 83rd show, is the featherweight tournament final between Rad Martinez and Shahbulat Shamhalaev.
Bellator women’s 155-pound champion Zoila Frausto, the wife of MMA fighter Jorge Gurgel, will take on the revelation Jessica Eye in a non-title affair.
Promising New Yorker Anthony Leone will be taking on former bantamweight champ Zach Makovsky. Makovsky holds a record of 14 wins in 17 fights and lost the belt to Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 65.
Leone, who has previously fought under the WEC and Strikeforce banners, has 11 wins in 16 career fights. Today he shows us how he likes controlling an opponent turtling on all fours. The trick is to know where to stick your hands and the right timing to use your legs.
