Last night Neil Grove and Cole Konrad ensured that they will square off in the finals of Bellator’s ongoing heavyweight tourney, as the two earned stoppage and decision victories respectively, at the promotion’s 29th event in Milwaukee.
Moments into their bout, Grove (pictured left) sent noted grappler Alexey Oleinik to the canvas with a hard kick to the midsection, and proceeded to finish off the heavyweight with a flurry of strikes. With the win the powerful striker is undefeated in 4 straight bouts and improves his record to 10-2-1.
The former NCAA wrestling champ Konrad once again relied on his extensive wrestling abilities, taking Damien Grabowski to the mat and controlling the fight from there. The 6-0 fighter was awarded 30-26, 30-27, and 30-27 scores from the cageside judges.
Here are the main card results for Bellator 29:
Cole Konrad def. Damian Grabowski via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-27)
Neil Grove def. Alexey Oleinik via TKO (strikes) R1, 0:45
Jameel Massouh def. Nick Mamalis via submission (guillotine choke) R1, 4:27
Brett Cooper def. Matt Major via TKO (punches) R2, 1:27
