Bellator 83 Results: Featherweight Tourney Final Postponed Due To Illness

The planned main event for Bellator 83 hit a snag, as Shahbulat Shamhalaev came down with food poisoning earlier in the day.

Shamhalaev was scheduled to face Rad Martinez in the finals of the season seven featherweight tournament. The two will now meet at Bellator 84.

Jessica Eye and Zoila Gurgel stepped into the make-shift main event, with Eye scoring a first round submission victory over the Bellator champion in a non-title fight.

Also, former Bellator champion Zach Makovsky was defeated by Anthony Leone via split decision.
