Eduardo Dantas wasn’t able to finish Marcos Galvao like he did in their first encounter, but he did dominate the action at Bellator 156 to reclaim the bantamweight title.

Dantas punished Galvao with punches and legkicks throughout the fight, and cruised to a one-sided, unanimous decision win. In their first meeting, back in 2013, Dantas won via second round, knockout. Galvao was fighting for the first time since last March, when he defeated Joe Warren to become champion.

Here are the results from Bellator 156, which took place in Fresno, California.
