Russia’s Alexander Shlemenko, winner of the Bellator middleweight GP, failed to overcome title holder Hector Lombard this Thursday, at the thirty-fourth installment of the event.

In the female fight, Zoila Frausto, girlfriend of Brazilian fighter Jorge Gurgel, and Japan’s Meguma Fuji had an evenly-matched bout, and by split decision the American was declared the first champion of the Bellator 115-pound division.
