Bellator 156 “Galvao vs Dantas” took place last night (Sat.,June 17, 2016) at Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif. The show was headlined by a Bantamweight title defense pitting champion Marcos Galvao against Eduardo Dantas.
This fight had been in the making for a while. Dantas knocked Galvao out in the first meeting between the two back when he was the champion in 2013. But ever since Galvao beat Warren for the title, two attempts to book a rematch had fallen through.

Through the first two rounds Dantas was living the motto “speed kills.” He left Galvao standing in awe of his speed, unable to do anything but react to the leg kicks and head combos Dantas threw his way. Galvao stayed planted on his left leg showing little to nothing in the way of footwork or striking, and every takedown attempt vanished into thin air.
In the third round the damage really started to accumulate in a negative way, swelling Galvao’s right eye shut and leaving black and blue marks all over his left leg. By comparison Dantas looked as fresh as he was to start Round 1.
