Eduardo Dantas defended the Bellator bantamweight championship last night against Marcos Galvão at Bellator 89 on SpikeTV. Dantas landed a beautiful uppercut that floored Galvão in the second round. The punch came shortly after Dantas kicked Galvão in the head which sent Galvao sprawling. Dantas is now 5-0 in Bellator as well as the promotion’s first bantamweight champ. The Brazilian is 15-3 in his career, but had lost his last fight which took place outside Bellator.
