Perfect way to end the year for Bellator. They have some nice momentum lately. Perfect way to (sorta) kick off the 135 GP.
(Also Pettis deserves a ton of credit for not punching Horiguchi when he was out.)
It’s an unlikely event given what had happened in other rounds, but exchanging in short space along the fence line like that where you have to angle off - the opposite of what Horiguchi was doing previously - is always a dangerous proposition.
