Bellator 153: Complete Results From The Night

Benson Henderson

Benson Henderson’s Bellator debut will be one the former UFC lightweight champion likely wants to forget.

Henderson was dominated for five rounds by reigning welterweight titleholder Andrey Koreshkov in the main event of Bellator 153 Friday night. The card aired live on Spike TV.

Koreshkov remained perfect outside of his one loss to former Bellator and current ONE champion Ben Askren.

In the co-main event, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire locked up a guillotine choke on Henry Corrales for the win, while Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos stunned Brennan Ward with a 30-second submission. Also, Michael Page earned a victory via tap due to a toe hold over Jeremie Holloway.
