Bellator 9 Results – Canadian Nick Ring Victorious
Bellator IX was originally scheduled to take place at the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada but due to complications with commission regulations the event was forced to relocate on a few weeks notice.
The Monroe Civic Center in In Monroe, Louisiana was the new home for Bellator IX and the tournament continues. Hector Lombard advanced when he made quick work of Damien Stelly getting the first round TKO. Jared Hess also advanced with his third round TKO victory over Yosmany Cabezas. The two winners will meet for the Middleweight Tournament Finals.
Canadian Nick Ring returned to MMA action after a long layoff securing a first round submission victory by guillotine choke over Isidro Gonzalez. Ring won the Pride tryouts years ago in Vegas with KJ Noons, and hasn’t really been seen since in teh MMA ring, but he did score a submission victory over Jiu Jitsu and MMA veteren Joe Doerksen at the FILA Canadian Trials. Brian Bird has done wonders with Nick over the years and Nick is a TOP notch Canadian on the rise.
