Bellator veterans Brian Rogers and Vitor Vianna met at Bellator 61 in a classic striker vs. grappler match up. Rogers lived up to his nickname "The Predator" and delivered a vicious flying knee knockout in the first round to earn the Bellator moment.
At Bellator 61 the Season 6 middleweight tournament began from Bossier City, Louisiana. Maiquel Falcao, Bruno Santos and Vyacheslav Vasilevsky all won their tournament fights by decision. Brian Rogers took a more emphatic route, knocking Vitor Vianna out with a picture perfect flying knee. The four fighters will clash later this season in the semi-finals.
