Season Six of Bellator concluded with Bellator 70 from New Orleans, Louisiana. In the lightweight tournament finals, Rick Hawn scored a unanimous decision over the gritty Brent Weedman to secure a title shot against reigning 155-pound champ Michael Chandler. Cole Konrad only needed 60 seconds to defend his heavyweight title, as he took down Eric Prindle and slapped on a nasty kimura to force the submission. In the second bantamweight semifinal, Luis Nogueira scored an impressive third round TKO over Hiroshi Nakamura and meets Marcos Galvao in the tournament finals later this summer. Veteran and hometown hero Rich Clementi secured a first round win after locking up Derek Campos in a guillotine. Get the highlights from Bellator 70.
