Not the strongest fight or the best but this is a case of no one else available and/or no clear contenders. Shlemenko just fought two weeks ago, McCrory just fought on Friday, and Schilling & Carvalho aren't scheduled to fight each other until April.

Strikeforce Veteran knockout artist Benji "The Razor" Radach returns to the cage to face Ben Reiter

One of MMA's hardest-hitting pioneers will return to action for the first time since 2010, as Benji "The Razor" Radach (21-6) has agreed to replace an injured A.J. Matthews (7-3) in a middleweight preliminary fight against Ben "The Hunter" Reiter (15-0-1).

The new addition again finalizes a full nine-bout preliminary card scheduled in support of four main-card contests at "Bellator MMA: Halsey vs. Grove

Caldwell is an interesting rising talent his wrestling is unorthodox but high level especially transitions and passes in general.

Standup is a bit herky jerky but still works well.

Silva looked confused off the bat.....1st round was good grappling and decent striking but it onky got worse for silva each round.....grest decision for caldwell.

Dudu won....in an interesting battle

Grove survived the arm triangle crush i thought his head would pop off....but eventually succumbs to halseys standup power and gnp.

Wonder if halsey goes back after his 185 title he beat himself for,or will he test 205 since he's been talking about it and came in heavy?

Was surprised to see Grove survive so long in that fight. Thought he was done in the first with the arm triangle but he did a good job staying in the fight until the fourth round where Halsey just put a beating on him.

Agreed cd i thought groves head would pop like a pimple lol but he survived and even looked good in standup at times but halseys strength and endurance are crazy.

He looked gassed but wasnt he just kept going and his strength never failed he actually got better as the fight progressed.

To be fair, that's not surprising as Halsey never went to the fourth round before and hasn't gone the distance in a year.

Yeah, I agree. He was impressive even in the fourth round when he got the finish, even though he was pretty gassed out. Sucks he lost the belt though for coming in over weight. They should probably just give it back to him since he was already fined. Makes no sense to have others fighting for the belt.

He could be but if not, would rather they let him keep the belt. Bellator has more depth at 205. Would be some interesting fights for him there. He should fight in both divisions.

Yeah, 185 division went from one of their best divisions to one of their weaker divisions recently.

If they did that a lot of their middle weight talent might leave.

Also is that even legal?
