BELLATOR 73 RESULTS: Attila Vegh and Marcos Galvao Earn Title Shots with Tourney Wins in Tunica - 8/24/12

Bellator Fighting Championships presented Bellator 73: Wiuff vs Vegh on Friday, August 24, 2012, at the Harrah's Tunica Hotel and Casino in Tunica Resorts, Mississippi. The main card aired live on MTV2.

In the main event, Slovakia's Attila Vegh knocked out American MMA ironman Travis "Diesel" Wiuff in a mere 25 seconds to win the Bellator Summer Series 2012 Light Heavyweight Tournament. Wiuff had been undefeated in Bellator with a non-title decision victory over Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Christian M'Pumbu. Wiuff's storybook comeback ended a page short of a championship rematch with M'Pumbu. Instead, Vegh's tournament victory earns him what will be an international flavored fight with the French 205-pound champ.

In the all-Brazilian co-main event, Marcos Galvao used a series of vicious elbows to finish off Luis Nogueira in the finals of the Bellator Season 6 Bantamweight Tournament.

This victory is bittersweet for Marcos Galvao, who recently lost his mother, and who will now be challenging his Nova Uniao fighting family member Bellator Bantamweight Champion Eduardo Dantas in a mentor versus student showdown at Bellator 79.
