Bellator 56 results and fight videos

We were really pulling for Neil Grove. It’s a tough loss for him, yet I expect to see him back soon. Ben Askren defended his belt against tournament winner Jay Hieron and Erick Prindle delivered a brutal KO (see video below), and all of this was on MTV2. If like me, you watched Bellator and UFC 137…it was a great night of MMA.
