Alvarez Punishes Huerta; Askren Wins Welterweight Crown

By FCF Staff  Eddie Alvarez added another impressive victory to his growing resume last night in Philadelphia, as the Bellator lightweight champion punished the always game Roger Huerta through two rounds, before the UFC vet was unable to continue into the third.

“Definitely a success tonight, everything I could have dreamed of went exactly according to plan. Everything went perfectly I couldn’t be more happy,” Alvarez was quoted saying about the non-title bout in a press release from the promotion.
“What an incredible night of fights, my first thank you tonight is to the city of Philadelphia,” said Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney.  “The crowd, the energy was great; I’m glad Philadelphia fans were treated to a world-class mixed martial arts display.”
In another of the card’s feature attractions, Ben Askren utilized his highly developed wrestling skills to score a unanimous decision win over Lyman Good, becoming Bellator’s welterweight champ.
“I’m glad people got a chance to see my heart. I’m pretty happy with my performance. I told people I was ready to five and that’s what I did,” said Askren. “I’ve only been punching things for about a year, so I have a lot of room for improvement.”
