Here are the results from Bellator and Glory’s “Dynamite” card tonight in San Jose, which saw Bellator’s light-heavyweight champ Liam McGeary submit Tito Ortiz in the headliner.

McGeary forced the UFC hall of famer to tap out to an inverted triangle-choke in the opening round.

Phil Davis made the most of his Bellator debut, as the UFC vet took out Emanuel Newton and Francis Carmont to win the card’s one night, light-heavyweight tournament. “King Mo” Lawal was unable to compete in the final due to injury, after decisioning Linton Vassell.

The card also saw former PRIDE president Nobuyuki Sakakibara appear during the broadcast, and announced that Fedor Emelianenko will fight for his new organization on New Year’s Eve. The card will be broadcast on Spike.

Fedor’s opponent has yet to be determined. Bellator is expected to have some of the organization’s fighters compete on the card.

Here are the results for “Dynamite”, which was hosted by San Jose’s SAP Center.
