Bellator 61 resultsIn the first quarterfinal fight of the Bellator Season Six Middleweight Tournament, excitement was in the air as Bellator veterans Vitor Vianna and Brian Rogers were expected to bring fireworks when they squared off. The fight started with both men exchanging on the feet, however, Vianna soon made it known his intentions of bringing the fight to the ground. Rogers, showing excellent takedown defense, preferred to keep the fight standing where he was at a distinct advantage. Rogers rocked Vianna with a right cross and followed up with a highlight-reel flying knee that sent the Brazilian Vianna to the canvas. Referee Jason Herzog stepped in to stop the fight at 4:14 of the first round and give Brian Rogers the knockout victory.

    That was an amazing KO! Vitor only seemed to want the fight on the ground. Rogers is a beast! If he fights like that through the whole tournament he’s gonna be cashing a check for 100 grand in a couple months

    I turned it on right at that point. The combo then knee, great way to start watching a fight. Unfortunately the rest of the night blew. At least there was TUF to watch.
