Tonight Bellator and Spike TV present their big Bellator MMA: Dynamite 2 card, featuring Satoshi Ishii vs. Rampage Jackson as the MMA main event. While there will be a lot of MMA fights, there will also be two kickboxing bouts broadcast on Dynamite 2, Denise Kielholtz against Gloria Peritore and Kevin Ross against Justin Houghton.
Bellator Kickboxing 2 directly follows that, starting off with a bang with the big rematch between Joe Schilling and Hisaki Kato. Also fighting will be Raymond Daniels and Keri Melendez.
Tara Walker (R3 - Decision) Mimi Kutzin
Darryl Cobb (R2 - TKO) Elmir Kulosmin
Bellator MMA: Dynamite 2
Gloria Peritore (R3 - Split Decision) Denise Keilholtz -- Weird decision. Denise was mostly in control of the fight, but she was doing as she does where she does a lot of foot sweeps and dumps. Those scored points in Enfusion, but nowhere else. Gloria looked pretty good in round one, was backpedaling during the second round and turned it up a bit in round three, but it was still a close fight. Not a great decision, not a total robbery, either.
Kevin Ross (R3 - Decision) Justin Houghton -- This was exactly what you would expect from this fight, along with crappy reffing with a ref not calling a livershot down in the third round.
Bellator Kickboxing 2
Hisaki Kato (R2 - KO) Joe Schilling -- This fight was all Joe, up until that last moment. Kato was settling into his groove and landing shots, but Joe was aggressive like usual and landing some big shots. Joe had Kato hurt in the second round and off of a clinch break Kato went for a spinning backfist that connected and put Joe down and out. Crazy.
Raymond Daniels (R1 - KO) Stefano Bruno -- Raymond Daniels spinning back kick. That's all that you need to know.
Keri Melendez (R3 - Decision) Sarah Howell
