Bellator 260: Undefeated Ukrainian fighter Yaroslav Amosov became the new Bellator welterweight champion, defeating the current title holder, Douglas Lima, in a dominant style.
The fight, which became the main event of Bellator 260, went the entire distance, following the results of five rounds of which all the judges gave the victory to Amosov twice by unanimous decision with a score of 50-45 and 49-46.
Most of the match, the Ukrainian controlled the Brazilian in the stalls, while in the stand Amosov competently moved and broke the distance, thereby not allowing the champion, who looked frankly passive and discouraged, to realize his advantage in striking technique.
