Bellator 97 Video Highlights: Chandler and Askren Continue Their Dominance

Bellator 97 took place last night at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, N.M.

The main card opened with Patricio Freire knocked out Jared Downing in the second round.

Then two Summer Series tournament finals took place as Ryan Martinez won the heavyweight tournament as he defeated Vitaly Minakov by a third round TKO. King Mo came out to show why he was a big time signing to Bellator as he defeated Jacob Noe to win the light heavyweight tournament when he won by verbal submission in the third round.

Bellator then closed the show with two title fights as welterweight champion Ben Askren continues to show why he’s growing as the one of the best welterweights in the world as he defeated Andrey Koreshkov by fourth round TKO. In the main event, lightweight champion Michael Chandler continued his path of destruction as he knocked out David Rickels 44 seconds into the fight.

Check out the video above of the highlights of Bellator 97.
