Bellator 133 results: Manhoef vs Shlemenko
A very special Friday the 13th edition of Bellator put two killers against one another. This time however it was not Freddy vs. Jason, but rather a Storm vs. No Mercy. Former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander ‘Storm’ Shlemenko battled Melvin ‘No Mercy’ Manhoef in the main event of Bellator 133.
These two beasts went toe-to-toe and it was Shlemenko who pulled out a spinning backfist knockout, reminiscent of the light heavyweight champ, Emanuel Newton.
In the co-main event, former champ Pat Curran dropped a split decision to Daniel Weichel in a hard fought three-round war.
The females would go the distance as Julia Budd and Gabrielle Holloway saw 15 minutes of action but the scorecards ultimately swayed in the favor of Budd, with one judge even giving Holloway a score of 24, meaning she dropped two points each round.
