Video: Bellator 81 lightweight tournament semifinals highlights

Check out this exciting video compilation taken from the exciting Bellator 81 main card which featured Marcin Held, Dave Jansen, Ricardo Tirloni, Rich Clementi and Marlon Sandro.

Bellator Fighting Championships continued its seventh season this past Friday night (Nov. 16, 2012) with the lightweight tournament semifinals in Kingston, Rhode Island.

It was a night of high octane action which featured a wild main event submission finish between two experienced grapplers and one of the more controversial decisions of the entire season as Marcin Held and Dave Jansen advanced to the season seven lightweight finals.

As expected with Bellator, the promotion put out a highlight video which features some of the best moments of the show including the incredible ground battle between Rich Clementi and Marcin Held as both men exchanged leg locks, the surprising striking war between ground technicians Ricardo Tirloni and Dave Jansen as well as some entertaining non-tournament bouts featuring two-time tournament finalist Marlon Sandro and young up-and-comer Perry Filkins.
