Bellator 28 went down last night from the Mahalia Jackson Theater in New Orleans, Louisiana, featuring a bevvy of hungry up-and-comers as well as a few battle tested veterans.
It was a tough night for UFC veterans as Bellator season two lightweight finalist Carey Vanier upset Rich Clementi, while season two middleweight semifinalist Eric Schambari overcame the venerable Matt Horwich.
Both fights ended via split decision.
Season two featherweight semifinalist Georgi Karakhanyan swept the judge's scorecards against Anthony Leone and undefeated newcomer Marcus Andrusia was choked out by fast-rising NCAA D-1 wrestling champ, Eric Larkin.
