Askren vs. Hieron

Bellator 56 Highlights

Bellator 56 from Kansas City, Kansas on Oct. 29 saw undefeated welterweight champion Ben Askren win a close decision in a back and forth five-round fight over MMA veteran and Season 4 tournament winner Jay Hieron. The Season 5 heavyweight semi-finals were one of the fastest tournament rounds in Bellator history, with both ending in less than a minute. Thiago Santos kept his streak of first-round submissions alive, knocking down Neil Grove early on and finishing him with a rear-naked choke. In a battle of two strikers, Eric Prindle dispatched of previously-unbeaten Ron Sparks in 40 seconds with a left hook that put Sparks out. Featherweight Jeremy Spoon kept his perfect record intact and used his superior stand up to outpoint Adam Schindler. Catch the best of best from Memorial Hall right here.
