Konrad, Grabowski, and Frausto Advance in Tourney Action
By FCF Staff Cole Konrad, Damian Grabowski and Zoila Frausto are all moving onwards in their respective Bellator Fighting Championships tournament paths, as all three fighters earned Unanimous Decision victories last night at the historic Chicago Theatre, in Chicago, Illinois.
The former NCAA wrestling champion Konrad extended his undefeated record to 5-0, with a decision win over heavyweight Rogent Lloret, while the Polish prospect Grabowski outscored Scott Barrett for the UD victory.
In action from Bellator’s women’s tourney, Frausto was able to avoid the ground game of Jessica Pene, and also worked her way to a Unanimous Decision win.
Notable welterweight veterans Dan Hornbuckle and Brad Blackburn also fought their way to a decision; in the third frame Hornbuckle was able to outscore the UFC veteran with strikes, and was awarded a 29-28 score from all three judges.
“Dan Hornbuckle wanted the toughest fight we could provide him as soon as possible after his loss to Ben,” Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “Brad stepped up and these two gave us a back and forth war that was undeniably the fight of the night.”
Here are the results from last night’s Bellator 25 broadcast:
Cole Konrad def. Rogent Lloret via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Damian Grabowski def. Scott Barrett via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Dan Hornbuckle def. Brad Blackburn via Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
