The Bellator MMA Summer Series Bantamweight Final took place tonight at Bellator 102 from the Visalia Convention Center in Visalia, California. Rafael Silva and Anthony Leone would meet tonight to decide who takes on Bellator MMA bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas. In the end, the Brazilian would take the tournament crown tonight in California.
Silva would use a solid wrestling and BJJ-based attack to stymie the offense of Leone over the course of their three-round fight. Leone would keep Silva from ever getting too comfortable on top, but was unable to mount much offense of his own.
The victory for Silva gives him thirteen-straight victories and he now will face bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas later this year.
