BELLATOR 80 RESULTS: Alexander Volkov and Rad Martinez Advance to HW and FW Tournament Finals on MTV2 - 11/9/12

Bellator Fighting Championships presented Bellator 80: Warren vs Evinger on Friday, November 9, 2012, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The main card of this event (Episode 7 of Season 7) aired live on MTV2.

In the main event, former Bellator featherweight champion Joe Warren made a successful return to bantamweight against an overmatched Owen Evinger, brother of WMMA star Tonya Evinger. Warren flirted with 135-pounds before, but has now made a permanent move back to bantamweight after suffering a brutal knockout loss to Pat Curran at 145-pounds.

Alexander Volkov advanced to the finals of the Bellator Season 7 Heavyweight Tournament with a last-second knockout of Vinicius "Spartan" Queiroz at the end of the second round. The finish came after referee James Warring, a former pro boxer, inexplicably stood the fighters up from the ground after just mere seconds.

The Rocky Balboa adversary-inspired Russian heavyweight Alexander "Drago" Volkov will fittingly fight American Richard Hale, a real-life Rocky, for the heavyweight tournament title at the Bellator 84 season finale.

Rising star Rad Martinez looked excellent in outpointing MMA veteran Wagnney Fabiano over the course of 15 minutes to advance to the finals of the Bellator Season 7 Featherweight Tournament. Martinez will lock horns with fellow top 145-pound prospect Shahbulat Shamhalaev in the tourney final at Bellator 83.

*At the WEC 52 post-fight press conference, Urijah Faber said he would be splitting his submission bonus with his Team Alpha Male teammate Joseph Benavidez, who also scored a submission victory.

TOTAL DISCLOSED PAYROLL: $284,500 + $40,000 bonuses

NOTE: The salary amounts do not include any individual fighter endorsement earnings for this event, nor do they include any undisclosed bonuses. Fighters pay out of pocket for licensing fees and related expenses. Fighters spend months training in preparation for these fights, so they are being paid for work already completed in the gym as well as their performance. In my opinion, a fighter can NEVER be overpaid, and most fighters are often underpaid given the risk they incur in their workplace.
