Bellator 54 was held last night in Atlantic City, NJ and saw the semi-final round of the Bellator season 5 middleweight tournament as well as a non-title fight featuring Bellator bantamweight champ Zach Makovsky.
Alexander Shlemenko endured a tough first round at the hands and feet of Brian Rogers before coming back to blast him out in the second. In the other middleweight tourny bout, Vitor Vianna made short work of Bryan Baker after catching him charging into a right hand for a 0:54 TKO.
Makovsky was able to submit Roberts toward the end of the first round with a nifty north-south choke.
