Bellator 258 Results

Ancasville, Connecticut hosted Bellator 258, the highlight of which was a bantamweight title fight between reigning division champion Juan Archuleta and his belt challenger, Sergio Pettis.

The fight went the entire distance – following the results of five rounds of the match, the referees, by unanimous decision with a score of 50-45 and 49-46, twice gave the victory to the former UFC fighter, who dominated his opponent for most of the match.

In the co-main event, Anthony Johnson defeated Brazilian Jose Augusto by knockout in the second round, however, the ex-contender for the UFC light heavyweight title made his fans nervous, almost suffering an early defeat already in the starting segment of the fight.
