Bellator 95 Middleweight Tournament Final Results – Marshall Blasts Cooper

YRISPMSTLSMHRZX.20130218180243Live from the Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Bellator 95 saw the crowning of a Season 8 Middleweight Tournament Champion as Doug Marshall put Brett Cooper to sleep in the finals.

The bout started off well for “Fudoshin”, who held his own in the striking department for the first half-minute, securing a seemingly effortless takedown. “The Rhino” would scramble and get back to the feet, where he wanted the action. It wasn’t long before the Californian uncorked a destructive right hand across the jaw of Cooper, who crumbled. “The Rhino” followed with punches, leaving his opponent unconscious at the 3:39 mark of the opening round.

The former WEC champion now has a date with Bellator Middleweight Titleholder Alexander Shlemenko.
